#MicroblogMondays: A red sun

Not sure what #MicroblogMondays is? Read the inaugural post which explains the idea and how you can participate too

There are fires just south of where we are. Too far away to be of any concern, but the past couple of days the sunrises and sunsets have been veiled in a red hue.

Red is the color of passion, fire, seduction, violence and adventure. With red comes a sense of urgency. We've all been feeling it here, even though it's not clear what or why.


  1. We are seeing reddish sunrises and sunsets here, too. It's so weird when signs of tragedy produce something so beautiful.

  2. Your last paragraph is really lovely. It's always eerie and emotionally difficult to see beautiful sunsets and know they come from other people's heartbreak, I find.

  3. I'm glad that you are okay with all the fires -- I wondered if they were creeping closer to you. It is difficult when the beauty you see is a result of devastation elsewhere, sunsets from fires or volcano eruptions. I agree with red making everything feel urgent... I hope peace comes soon.

  4. I hope the sunsets are as close as the fires get to you!
