Venus In The Pink

Just like “Groundhog Day.” A truly great movie, by the way, but I never actually wanted to live it.

Another evening where I walked away from the mountain of work at my desk and the Deadlines From Hell ™ and took thirty or forty minutes to read and watch the sunset.

Do you see Venus up there? It’s right there in the clouds, but they’re not that thick, so you can see it shining through just below the three power lines, about halfway between the trees on either side of the picture. Click on the image to blow it up to full size – it’s there!

Can you see it now? Like a diamond floating up there in pink cotton candy.

The sunset two days ago was very much orange and yellow where tonight was very much pink and purple.

And as before, and as it will be tomorrow, eventually it all fades to black. I waved to Major who was walking by, disappointed by the absence of the bunnies who won’t come out when I’m sitting out there.

Maybe tomorrow I’ll sit out in the back yard to harass the wrens instead so that Major can spook the bunnies.

It’s the little things.

    Thanks for that sunset! Working on our August “Flight Line.” Too much time on my hands. Casey wants me to slow down so I don’t get our December issue to him in July. He’s now threatening to put a contract out on me. Will probably have your story on the Hubble telescope in our July issue. As the saying goes: “keep up the good work.” Dave

  2. Watching Venus dance with the moon was great fun. It’s perfectly angled for sitting on my sofa looking out at the evening sky my new house!
