Not every sunset has the drama and vibrance of a thunderstorm. Most approach quietly and reverently and seem to bring with them a sense of peace. They speak to us not in vibrant reds and purples but in softer pastel shades of greens and yellows. They drift by us slowly and cast their colorful shadows in the still waters of a quiet lake. And they leave us with just a touch of color.
