With apologies to the great work of Wallace Stegner, “Angle of Repose,” allow me to present this warm sunset, taken last evening. I was visiting with a dear friend, who lives on this beautiful stretch of road in East Williamson County, Texas. Looking west, I hastily explained, “time to go!” These photos were taken from the end (or beginning) of her long driveway. Since traffic was minimal, I stepped out into the road a few times. “Repose” is defined as ” a state of rest, sleep, or tranquility.” Let’s go with tranquility here. I watched that hot ball of light for a few minutes, its rays caressing the asphalt with color. By the time the sun began to fade, the light faded, too. The road was once again just a road. But I got what I wanted.
