Red sky at night, sailors’ delight.
Red sky at morning, sailors take warning.
I remember that line being uttered by James Garner in the movie The Great Escape. It has always stuck with me and in the morning I was greeted by the sunrise that you see in the pictures. Sadly, the camera was unable to capture just how red it was. I recently changed phones and I suspect my previous phone would have done a better job of capturing the colours I saw.
It was a beautiful sight as I walked to the bus stop. Not only did I get to see a sunrise that wasn’t marred by the dirty windows of the bus, but it was rather spectacular. I had little doubt that it would be Today’s Perfect Moment. From a visual standpoint, I doubted anything except a spectacular sunset would dethrone it.
This made me feel pretty good because the pressure was off. I had Today’s Perfect Moment and the day had hardly begun. I journeyed to work quite calmly on a mostly empty bus, never once complaining about how people had Monday off and I didn’t. After a sunrise like that, I didn’t care. I had my topic to write.
Sometimes, I can be wrong. Sometimes, something besides a spectacular sunset can eke out a win over a red sky morning.
One of my coworkers has taken up baking as a hobby. The thing is, she has long passed the hobby stage and has entered the realm of “good enough to be doing this professionally.” Her cakes are awesome looking and everything she has brought in to work to share has been delicious. She posts on Instagram and you can check out her desserts here. Please follow as I want to be encouraging.
I arrived at work, jazzed by the sunrise and the awesome spring weather, to find that she had brought in chocolate chip cookies. Homemade chocolate chip cookies for breakfast. Chocolate chip cookies for breakfast!
Okay, so I blew my diet plan. Still, I cannot deny that it was Today’s Perfect Moment.
