Sunset Moment

I love the word moment. I love every part of it—the way it looks and the way it sounds, how its meaning is crystal clear.

It’s now. It’s a flash of beauty that sears your mind forever, because it’s so damn special you can’t help but notice it.

Nothing else can compete with a moment.

This was a moment Mr. H and I shared together last week when we stayed at the Oregon Coast. We were spoiled, with the ocean in our front yard and 60 degree, sunny October days.

I brought my laptop with me, but I never opened it. I read, but not as much as I thought, as I was distracted by the view.

Every evening started the same way, sitting on driftwood in the sand, a front row seat at the Pacific Ocean theater.

There was nobody around. We had beer and a sunset.

And, we had a moment of…

Huge thanks to Mr. H for manning the cam with his usual brilliance.

And believe it or not, we didn’t touch these photos. There are no effects, just moments.

Do you guys have a sunset moment fave?

  1. I can’t believe I had not seen this moment… Mr H. sure know how to handle his camera when you’re in the foreground with such a view behind you. Special moment, special bond.

    I love sunsets. (I love sunrises too but I’m never up early enough and awake enough to truly enjoy them as much). They bring music to my hear and I remember “The City of Angels” when Nicholas Cage and his angel friend go to the ocean and listen to that music that no human can hear (supposedly). It’s like watching the full moon, it’s like seating on the sand and watching the waves, it’s like holding your lover’s hand.

    Thanks for sharing the moment with us and reminding us to enjoy them all.
    Happy moments to you 2!

    1. No worries, hon! It happens. That’s why it’s good to link to an old blog from time to time.

      That trip to the coast last October was so nice, because it was pretty clear (obviously unusual for Portland in the fall). We did have one sunset that got blocked out by some crazy fog that rolled in. That was a whole other experience that was completely breathtaking, and it ended up in my new novel.

      Such a tough movie, but it’s beautiful. I remember that scene! xo
