Today's muse: At our resort, many people gathered along the shore at sundown to watch the sun set for the day.

A row of worshippers stand sentry along the shore, watching and waiting for the change of the guard.
The fiery ball has completed its daily journey across the sky and begins to make a slow descent. The heavens explode in layers of crimson and gold; a bittersweet farewell as the globe touches the horizon. While the Lord Sun lays to rest for one more day, the Lady Moon takes her place to watch over her children.
All arms raise in welcome to embrace the white sphere. Believers send a heartfelt thanks to the protective Father and welcome the warm glow of the loving Mother.
Another day in paradise.
