the fairer sunsets
...Thoreau's Journal: 28-Jun-1852

There are meteorologists, but who keeps a record of the fairer sunsets? While men are recording the direction of the wind, they neglect to record the beauty of the sunset or the rainbow.

how can one record how splendid a sunset or a rainbow is for all?, for each sunset can mean so much more to one then another!one might glance and say the suns setting!, and i can stand there for the whole ordeal with many feelings being evoked other then its beauty!,so many sunsets at so many times of your life!every sunset one more day of your life is gone and i can think of no greater way for it to leave!. michael jameson oldantiqueguy@hotmail.com
