This week I turned 55. Tonight I spent the evening watching the sunset, sitting on the Mediterranean coast in Haifa Israel with good friends, good food and laughter. I shot the photos below, all from the same spot, and then it rained so we dashed inside the cafe for hot chocolate and dessert. The waiters sang "Happy Birthday" in English. Chocolate mousse melted in my mouth. It was a pretty great day.
“When the ship approached the equator, I stopped going out on deck in the daytime. The sun burned like a flame. The days had shortened and night came swiftly. One moment it was light, the next it was dark. The sun did not set but fell into the water like a meteor."- Isaac Bashevis Singer
- Isaac Watts"How fine has the day been! How bright was the sun, How lovely and joyful the course that he run! Though he rose in a mist when his race he begun, And there followed some droppings of rain: But now the fair traveller's come to the west, His rays are all gold, and his beauties are best; He paints the skies gay as he sinks to his rest, And foretells a bright rising again."
