Lest I forget why I started taking pics of sunsets.
Or why I got the camera that sits by my side more days than not, waiting.
This photo wasn’t taken today, or yesterday. It’s been sitting also waiting since mid-February for an internal storm to rage, to tear down signs and homes and raise the ocean in fury and finally – pass.

I struggle still to say the words out loud for fear I’ll hear my own voice.
For fear you’ll see me and judge me somehow unworthy, or less-than, or damaged. Put up a warning sign and walk gingerly around. Declare me a state of emergency.

So I’ll post pics of sunsets, and remember why I have to in silence still.
Until the day I won’t have to anymore.
