porch Light

After dinner I wandered down to a neighbor's house to see if she was home and free to chat.  She was.

We sat on her front porch together to catch up on kids and husbands and jobs (well, mine - she's freshly retired).  As is often the case, our conversation quickly dove into the deeper issues of life.

The sun began to set.  Sunsets are often beautiful, but tonight's was especially breathtaking.

It never occurred to me to run home and grab my camera to capture the image.  I hoped, trusted, that someone else with a far keener eye - and far nicer lens - was doing just that.

As for me, I was content.

All I wanted was to keep listening.  Keep talking.

Till the sky went dark.
