I’ve always considered myself a sunset aficionado. I love sunsets, I could watch them every night if I just actually did it. Sunrises tickle my fancy as well, but being that I’m less of a morning person and more of an evening person I tend to enjoy Mr. Sunshine the most when he’s getting ready for his evening slumber.

ANYWAY, a couple of Sunday’s ago I was strolling down Venice beach with my friend Amanda right around Sunset. We decided to move towards the water and take it in…
In all my years of sunsetting, as i’ll call it, I had never observed the activity that breathes within a sunset. i’ve looked at one and noticed a static pattern of exhilarating colors; I’ve captured it countless times with my camera or my minds eye. But this time, the sunset was more like a flicker of a kaleidoscopic candle behind glazed glass.
As the sun sank behind the horizon, it shimmered through the colors of the rainbow. Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet flashed before my eyes… activating my chakras. And even after the sun was gone, its glow still surged from beyond the horizon – as if it wasn’t done lighting that blissful, blessed day.
Oh yeah.
That day, I watched the sun set for the first time.
