"Sensual pleasures have the fleeting brilliance of a comet;

a happy marriage has the tranquillity of a lovely sunset."

"The true purpose of education is to teach a man to carry himself triumphant to the sunset."
Liberty Hyde Bailey

Everyone's looking at the sunset.
But I'm looking at THEM ;-]

"You can observe a lot just by watching."

Yogi Berra

Gotta get that perfect shot to take home to Tokyo!

"A vacation is like love - anticipated with pleasure,

experienced with discomfort, and remembered with nostalgia."


This would make a good post card, eh?

"If I can put one touch of rosy sunset into the life of any man
or woman,
I shall feel that I have worked with God."
Gilbert K. Chesterton

"Hope this comes out, Honey"
They won't believe it in Boise!

"For me optimism is two lovers walking into the sunset arm in arm.
Or maybe into the sunrise - whatever appeals to you."
Krzysztof Kieslowski

"Let's just enjoy the moment, Dear."

"Cloud come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm,
but to add color to my sunset sky."
Rabindranath Tagore

So glad you could join us today-
A L O H A! Cloudia

Dear Cloudia --
Mahalo for the sunset walk. I LOVE sunsets in Hawaii....nothing to stop the sun's path except the ends of the Earth.
I saw sunrise on Maui's Haleakala at 6 a.m., then drove down the mountain, back to west Maui with plenty of time to see the sunset on the same day. Heaven!

I love "Life guard on duty"
The Sun within the Window excellent.
You can crop the image to be much better.
Congrats for the click.
Cheers !!!
And keep travelling.

You could go into the postcard business with all the great photos you take!

Beach - something in between, not yet sea, not anymore land. Looking at the sun setting to brighten another part of the world, leaving me behind, drowning into the comfort spiral of life.

Thank you for those pictures very much.

You sound like a real people watcher. I do sometimes but mostly I seem to pass through the world oblvioius.

There's nothing as romantic as a beautiful sunset. :)

Oh Cloudia - would that we could have some of that wonderful sunshine and warmth here in an increasingly cool autumn. Lovely pics - especially the reflection on the lifeguard post.

I took your walk on the beach and now I feel like a new person! And loved the silly parrot guy and a quote from my favorite silly baseball guy.
Happy Wednesday!

Fireblossom said...

Sometimes I want a comet, though...

Cloudia said...

Your posts are always so heartfelt and beautiful. Sunsets are my favorite part of vacationing somewhere like Aruba or Hawaii. I got tears in my eyes the first time I saw the sun fade into the ocean. The most beautiful things in life are all around us. Amazing!

Elizabeth Bradley said...

Yes! Love the idea for the greeting card. It's "wish you were here" to the power of 10.

Teresa said...

Wow, Cloudia, somehow I missed this terrific post. I loved the sunset pictures.
