Running To Catch Up With The Sun, But It’s Sinking...

Real Estate Agent with ReeceNichols Real Estate 00244377

I love beautiful sunsets like the next person. I hope you like this one that I'm sharing. It took my breathe away. Here in Kansas we have some amazing sunsets and I always like to take a photo to capture the brief moment of TIME. I'm often able to catch unobstructed views of the sunsets here because there is lots flat open prairieland, characteristic of the Great Plains, unlike where I moved from in the Hudson Valley near the foothills of the Catskills, where the sunset from my home was blocked by rolling hills. 

As a real state agent, it might be worth mentioning that site selection or a home's location could make all the difference where it comes enjoying the view of a sunrise, sunset or taking into consideration any sort of directional sun exposure. How the sun does or doesn't shines into you home during the day can effect your mood. The direction of the sun matters when you consider how to landscape your home, or where to locate a future pool.

And, just for fun. I might be giving away my age by referring to the song TIME by Pink Floyd. I would play this song over and over again on one of my first vinyl albums, Dark Side of The Moon. Every time I see an amazing sunset I whisper the lyrics to that Pink Floyd song. Back when I was a teenager, this song mellowed me but I didn't realize then just how much the lyrics would resonate with me as an adult as I think about the repetition of every life.

So you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again.
The sun is the same in a relative way but you're older...

Wow what an incredible photo of the sunset, I feel like I am there watching it from close up. On a side note, how did you end up from  the Hudson Valley to KS? on a side note I spent some time going to school next the the Hudson River:)Endre

Hi Carol, I am delighted with the sunsets and sunrises, too. And I love that Pink Floyd's song, I listen to it often in the car - my classic rock station likes to play it often. When choosing a home in AZ, we always look where the Sun will be - it has an impact on your mood, type of landscaping and on your A/C bills, too.

Our home faces north and I have more snow to shovel than the house across the street that faces south.
