Have you ever had one of those days where you opted to take the long way home? Today was one of those days for me. Choosing the alternate route allowed me to walk with the sunset.
Dar Williams sings a beautiful line in her song "After All"
The sun rose with so many colors it nearly broke my heart
It worked me over like a work of art
And I was a part of all that
It is an interesting idea to feel a part of something. The "something" piece can vary i.e. a relationship, a community, the universe. I love the notion of being a part of something so much larger than myself that I can almost observe it from a distance. No matter how small I feel sometimes, I am still an important part of the whole.
Maybe my spirit is a part of the sunset I saw today.
And it is a part of me...
