I was standing at the kitchen sink pondering our dinner menu and gazing out the window when I realized just how beautiful the light was outside at that very moment. I grabbed my camera, and six legs went bounding out the front door and down the porch steps.
The world looked awash in color, all aglow. Everything that was mousy brown or grey had turned a brilliant honey-gold and orange, as if it were radiating heat. It was surreal and beautiful. I stared for a full minute trying to take it all in.
It was gone in a matter of moments, but I felt so blessed by such warmth on such a bitter cold day.
