Above the lights of our Christmas Tree are reflected in the window against a recent sunset.

Those Winter Sunsets
Winter sunsets come early these days but tend to last almost as long as summer sunsets. The sun and earth tend to dance the same in this long marriage of circles. But I think they somehow have a colder-gold look about them in the winter months. If there are no clouds, the sunset is bright and clean and clear. When there are clouds throwing veils against the blues of our sky, nature takes the opportunity to dip her brush into the pinks, the fuschias, the corals, and the salmons. She works in watercolors and not oils. When shadows begin to flow across the highest part of the sunset, nature pulls our her drawer of purples and lilacs and dark wines and then pauses and waits while we admire her handiwork.
