“You can’t blame gravity for falling in love.”
For over a decade, my husband and I have enjoyed well over 3,650 California sunsets. The sunsets are never the same. Each one with its red, white, pink, purple and blue hues, one more dramatic than the next.
There is one thing we have noticed throughout the past decade. That is the fact that more and more couples flock to Redondo Beach to watch these spectacular daily images.
The sunsets may not take but a few minutes to experience, but it’s the lingering colors of the sunset that have you mesmerized by its beauty. Maybe that’s why couples young and old can be seen at the end of the day sharing not only their love but the love for that sunset.
“Our task must be to free ourselves by
widening our circle of compassion
to embrace all living creatures and
the whole of nature and its beauty.”
“Sensual pleasures have the fleeting
brilliance of a comet; a happy marriage has
the tranquillity of a lovely sunset.”
“A cloud does not know why it moves
in just such a direction and at such a speed.
It feels an impulsion… this is the place to go now.
But the sky knows the reasons and the patterns
behind all clouds, and you will know, too,
when you lift yourself high enough
to see beyond the horizons.”
“There is a harmony in autumn, and a luster in its sky,
which through the summer is not heard or seen,
as if it could not be, as if it had not been!”
Percy Bysshe Shelley
