Red Sky, Sign of a Better Day.



 You know the old saying about a red sky at night, a colorful sunset gives the promise of a better day to follow. That's all anyone can hope for, that tomorrow will be a better day if you have been having trouble in life. I am happy to say that things seem to be settling down with mom, each night she sleeps a little longer and each day she eats a little better. The New medications seem to be working, I understand that this is temporary, one month, six months or a year until she becomes immune to their effect and we will be back to step one but for now, she is becoming contended again, I can only hope it keeps progressing towards a more comfortable life.

 The other evening I went to go outside and was greeted by this colourful sunset, one of the beauties of life, a sign of a better day coming. I had spent time with mom and things were changing on the positive side for once, I finally saw a glimmer of hope. I thought the sunset was a fitting end to my day. As with most things of beauty in nature, the colours were fading quickly, I snapped a few photos and suddenly everything was gone, maybe just like our time here, we have moments of beauty and suddenly it's over.

That's why I don't take anything in nature for granted. It always make me feel better. Fresh flowers in the house, the sounds at night, and the birds on my sill always make my day. Yesterday I even drove to the beach, very impromptu. With our temps still warm, I took advantage. I enjoyed it. Even had a two hour snooze, the water was lovely and the sunset was amazing. Like you said, it faded quickly, but what a show. It was worth the two and half hour drive. Glad your mother seems to be stabilizing too.

Do you mean the "Red sky at night, sailor's delight" saying? I have never heard of red sunsets as foreboding positive things for non-sailors. Or is this some oblique way of telling us you have arranged a Grindr date ("date") with a sailor?

Good news, always welcome. And that's a beautiful sunset. As the mistress says, Nature always surprises us.

Red sky around these parts means another fire! You do have a bit of the poet in you, Steven. I meant that metaphorically. Enjoy all of the upswings in your life to the fullest. It makes it easier to deal with the lows.
