9 Sunsets and Sayings…

Over the years I have gotten up early on occasion to see the sunrise at the Eastern Shore, and it can be pretty spectacular.  But my favorite time to watch the sun is at sunset.  From my own back yard to the Caribbean Sea and the mountains of Mexico…

“And the sunset itself on such waves of ether/That I just can’t comprehend/Whether it is the end of the day, the end of the world/Or the mystery of mysteries in me again.” ~ Anna Akmatova, The Complete Poems of Anna Akmatova

“Now she’s lit by the warm orange spreading from the horizon as not-quite-day, becomes not-quite-night.” ~ David Levithan, Every Day

“Each day is born with a sunrise/and ends in a sunset, the same way we/open our eyes to see the light/and close them to hear the dark./You have no control over/ how your story begins or ends…The journey of the sun/and moon is predictable./But yours,/is your ultimate/ART.”  ~ Suzy Kassem

Enjoy the journey…and don’t forget to take time to see the sun set.




  1. I am planning on going to Bethany beach to watch the sunrise this weekend. I seen you have went to Guadeloupe too? I have always wanted to visit there. Do you speak French ?

    • Yes, I have gone to Guadeloupe. I do speak a little French. It’s not necessary, but it’s very helpful. Grand Terre Island is more developed with lots of restaurants and shops and many people speak some English; Basse Terre Island’s rainforest and wild beaches are very pretty, but you don’t find many English speakers except at the restaurants in the better known tourist towns of Basse Terre and Deshaies. It’s a pretty island with friendly people.
