A sunset made me cry

It was our second day in Namibia.  We were staying at the Wolwedans Desert Lodge in the NamibRand Nature Preserve, a vast expanse of open desert in southern Namibia.

It had rained earlier in the day which filled the sky with billowy clouds, a rarity in the desert. Our guide Sam drove us out for sundowner cocktails and we settled in as the light faded from bright to gold.

Across the vastness you could feel a stillness settling in as the rich red earth dulled in the dimming light.

As the sun set, the light sparked the clouds to blaze like a fire.  Each second was a new magnificent hue, more impressive than the last.  I thought about how lucky I was to experience this.  I thought about my grandparents and my aunt who had passed away. I felt something so much bigger than myself. In those moments, I felt so small.  And so grateful.  And I simply could not hold back as subtle tears welled up and rolled down my cheek. 

It was a beautiful moment.
