It was somewhere between sunset and dusk as I sat at the computer on a very hot August night. I glanced outside at the evening sky. It was incredibly beautiful. Various shades of pink, purple, blues and grey. Breathtaking really.
I turned my attention back to the screen for a few brief minutes.
When I looked back, the difference was striking. Already the light had begun to fade. Night was closing in.
Immediately it made me think of Isabel's brief life.
A bursting forth and then a fading away.
