I was grabbing another cup of coffee and as I always do when it’s starting to get light I walk over to the only window in the kitchen which happens to be east facing. Unfortunately it’s most a blocked view due the the neighbor’s house but still you can see the south east sky which is perfect for sunrise here in the deep of winter. Today’s sunrise was another exceptionally deep red one.
I just walked into the kitchen to get some more coffee when I noticed the red glow coming in the east facing window. Really it’s the only window but that’s not a big deal. Due to the neighbor’s house you can only see to the southeast. The horizon was this deep almost lava red or even the red color when metal starts glowing a bit from heat. The clouds above it were darker gray with some red or purple mixed in but the real show was the deep red glow nearer to the horizon today.
I always appreciate the brighter colorful things in life. That really comes from back when I had my last cornea transplant and everything was not only clearer but so much brighter and more vibrant. I guess the cloudy cornea blocks more light than you’d think and you don’t know what your missing if you can’t see it. Ever since then I’d have to stop and look and enjoy every sunrise or sunset if I was able to.
