What an unbelievably beautiful sunset! Spectacular! It changes from blue to green to red to pink to white. It’s like watching coloured theatre lights change on the pleats of a hanging curtain. Blue to green to red to pink to white and back to blue! Part of its beauty must surely be that it passes. Things disappear so quickly. Just a fleeting glimpse into the expanse of the sky and then… darkness.
But this sunset seems to linger. Could it mean a storm at sea? A fine day tomorrow? An portent of better things to come?
None of these. It’s near midday, and I’m watching the nuclear fallout drift this way.
