"Fall Leaves & Sunsets Share A Lot In Common"

This time of year, we marvel at the beauty of the orange, yellow, golden, russet, red, tan, light green, and still dark green leaves on the trees as they explode with color. However, they are only visible at their peak for a couple of weeks. They begin falling to the ground and with a month or so, and the beautiful show that was begins closing down.

The same is true for a gorgeous sunset - one with streaks of orange, yellow, magenta, pink, or red mixed with a deep blue that make the twilight sky look like it's on fire. If you've ever tried to take a photo of it, you know that it lasts but just a few minutes and it is gone.

Maybe we can't handle too much outstanding beauty for any prolonged period of time. Regardless, fall foliage and sunsets - both extemely beautiful - are quickly gone. We have to enjoy them in the moment.
