Golden Confetti

Everyone wants their 15 minutes of fame, but I hafta tell ya that the sun gets it every night around here that the fog hasn't chased it away. We race around like maniacs taking pictures and finding places to park to watch the golden orb sink into the sea, hoping for the 'green flash' on the horizon or the most spectacular backlit wave. It's pure magic and I love how the sun's reflections sometimes appear as  sprinkled confetti atop the moving water. Liquid gold chips from heaven, slipping from the distant horizon to right beneath our feet, and such glorious moments cause us to well up with gratitude for God's gift of eyes and hearts to take it  all in.
