As you may know, or not if you are new to my website, I live in a beautiful place - the mountains of western North Carolina outside the little town of Brevard. Situated just above 3100 feet elevation, my Appalachian style log home sits atop a ridge and offers stellar views towards Toxaway and Highlands. The fact that I am fortunate enough to actually live here never escapes me. I am grateful. As is true of nature anywhere, the views are ever-changing, never quite the same, always offering a glimpse into the Divine’s handiwork. Last night’s sunset was no exception. After a couple of downpours around 6:00 and 7:00 pm, the remaining clouds were the perfect complement to the palette of colors that preceded the sun’s departure. A friend who was over for dinner captured the above shot which I wanted to share with all of you. I wish I were talented enough to capture these colors in a painting, but that ability is way beyond me.
