Desert sunsets are an amazing color display as the sun drops beyond the mountain to my west and shines with varying intensity on the mountain ranges scattered around the horizon. I have trouble deciding which direction to look as the colors vary by the minute in all directions.
The sunrises are equally stunning. I’m grateful for the habit I developed waking early during my last 4 years at work. I worked on the 6th floor in an office with an eastern facing window. I enjoyed catching glimpses of the sunrise as the workload allowed, but this is one of my favorite parts of retirement – rising early and spending some time greeting the day.
