Sunset Over Cook Inlet, Anchorage, AK (Aug 21)
Don Michael Hudson, PhD

I remain quite ambivalent toward sunsets. They’re too easy to photograph and get a “Wow.” Doesn’t take much work at all really. But one must be quick. The sun is the speed of light, no? I know. But in sunsets, the sun is speedy, and the dark overwhelms quickly. I also hold sunsets at a distance with great skepticism because, as a boy growing up in the South, how many “missionary” sunsets did I view on Sunday and Wednesday church services? That “sunset’ slide was always the last slide to almost every missionary slideshow. I forget the sermon-guilt point of the last slide, but it doesn’t matter now, does it? And sunsets are gorgeously sad. But morning waits ready.
