There is just something magical about watching the sunset. It is one of those few moments during the day that grounds you and makes you feel a part of something. Experiencing a sunset reminds you that even the simplest things in life can be the most inspirational.
It is profound to think that humanity has been witnessing the sunset for thousands of years. It is such a predictable act of nature but we are still mesmerized and transfixed on that image as the sun makes its decent into the horizon, knowing that you could miss its final moments with a mere blink of an eye.
What thoughts go through your mind when you watch the sunset? Do you assess all the accomplishments or disappointments of your day? Do you think about loved ones who you wish were with you at that instant? Or do you not think of anything at all and just release your mind to the serenity of the moment?
Living in Cayman, we are blessed to have the opportunity to enjoy breathtaking sunsets almost every day of the year. Hopefully the quotes below will inspire you to savor the last magical moments of the day.

“A little while and I will be gone from among you, whither I cannot tell. From nowhere we come, into nowhere we go. What is life? It is a flash of firefly in the night.
