Capture a sunset.
Consider capturing a sunset. It can be a sunset from long ago or one that’s happened this week. Here’s the challenge:
- Don’t use color words — red, pink, purple, but still allow us to visualize the color of the sunset.
- Don’t use seasonal words, but give us a sense of the time of year.
- Do reflect your “inside story” by describing the “outside story” of the sunset.
*Remember, you don’t have to accept this invitation…but I do hope you will accept the invitation to write. Sharing our stories is magical.

Thank you, Ruth, for reminding us to stop and consider the sunset. I will save that and savor it for another time.
This week, I wrote about facing the blank canvas and filled it with a spring garden trellis. Needed some green this week!

I love a good sunset, but I actually wrote about a memorable sunrise.
When I think of sunset, I think of summer… I’m going to work on that for next week. This week, when we got more snow another story, came to mind and it morphed into something else before I was done. Happy Weekend everyone. XO
This prompt worked for me as I continue to grapple with the grief of cleaning out my parents’ home. https://reflectionsontheteche.com/2021/03/20/sol21-day-20-a-sunset/
