Sunset was just... wow.
As my tea was brewing I went outside for a walk. As soon as I made it off Speedway I was struck by the quicksilver blue ocean, barely moving before the break. The sky smoldered above it, painted from a burnt orange peel to the deep blue of twilight. I stood on the bikepath just staring for a while before I saw the splashes in the water. Around twilight, all of the light disappears from the sand, making it almost like walking on the dark side of the moon. I stood out near the high tide line, watching surfers and feeding birds. When I turned around to head back home, a full moon barely rising stared back at me.
I guess that's why I live in Venice.
Hopefully tonight I'll be able to convince Chelle to call me at 2am so we can not miss another meteor shower together. The Leonids are supposed to be pretty spectacular this year. I really wish she was here.
