It is not possible to watch a sunset alone.
Even though you may not be physically near another person,
keep in mind those one, ten or a thousand miles away,
joining with you.
And of course God is always there steadfast as the sun,
ever changing as the earth’s position.
What attracts us is the beauty, the love, the wonder.
What attracts us is the connection to the whole
and tasting again our sense of purpose and place,
nourished like a hummingbird at the feeder,
like the infant at the breast.
As I marvel at another sunset,
I realize once more how deeply good life is,
and how thousands of people on the other side of the globe,
at this very moment, are witnessing and experiencing,
together with me,
the glory of God from different perspectives.
