Because of the life that I lead … OK, that sounds waaaaay too dramatic (and a tad sinister, plus it’s the beginning of a line from “Arrow”). Let me start over. Because of my schedule, I don’t get to see many sunrises — or sunsets, for that matter. By the time I wake up, the sun is directly overhead. And my spot in the newsroom doesn’t really offer much of a view, so I can’t see Apollo’s descent.
But this jury duty in Riverhead has turned my schedule around. I’m almost … normal. I head to “work” around 9 a.m. and head home by 5 p.m. It’s a long drive back but I look forward to it every day. Why? Because of sunsets like these.
Even mornings have become interesting. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a sky like this one … EVER! Doesn’t it look like an ermine cloak was pulled over part of it? One of our friends said he thought there were snow-capped mountains in the background.
