the most beautiful sunset.

10 of the 123 photos I took of last night's stunning, this-must-be-a-miracle sunset:
It was the sort of sunset that stops people on the streets. We watched as the pedestrians below stood and stared. We watched as, roof by filled roof, our neighbors joined the incredible sky show. First the view was a watercolor painting, then the horizon burst into flames, and finally, it all became a blur of soft pastels that looked like a sigh—a deep, easy sigh of a sky.

"I'm so happy," Radley kept repeating, over and over.

Me too. The words filled me up: "Me too."
