Yesterday’s Daily Prompt was to “look out your back … door — describe what you see …”
If you’d been outside of my back door and looked into the house yesterday, you would have seen me forgetting to publish this post. 🙂
So I’ll join in the prompt late: Here was my view on November 22, 2013 at 3:18 pm, as the sun was setting earlier and earlier on its journey to the shortest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.
I love how the golden rays light up the trees on Ulvenfjellet, and on the trunks and pine needles closer to home. But I really respond to how the rocks and stones seem to glow from within. In fact, in catching up with my favorite bloggers just now, I commented about that on a fellow expat’s post that “it must be the [Norwegian] trolls and their fires” causing the glow within the Norwegian mountains and rocks. (I encourage you to visit Mjollnir’s post and see his views of Løvstakken glowing in the setting sun a couple days ago.)
In my part of the world we now have views of the sun out the front door as it’s marching back towards its longest day of the year rendezvous. Like the tides of the fjords and the sound of the snoring dog behind me, the sun follows the constant, rhythmic, and dependable motion of our universe. A little awe inspiring! (And always a feast for the eyes.)
