evening light

evening light
The light is starting to change.
.
I love watching the light change throughout the year. It lies across the counters and drapes over the floor.
.
Sometimes I walk into the kitchen and am startled that the angle of the sun is different than it was the last time I noticed.
.
Sometimes I walk into the kitchen and the light is just right so that you can see all the dirt that needs scrubbing on the cupboards. Then I get embarrassed at the thought that someone might walk in and see my lack of scrubbing skills and I get right to work.
.
But today I took a picture of the evening light at my kitchen sink, dirty dishes and all.
It seemed so familiar and friendly to me.
.
It felt like home.

Oh yes...I love the light and how you notice and how you love it. I even love the dirty dishes (it looks so intentional and glamorous in someone else's sink.)
