Is that a sunrise…..or a sunset?

By |

I love to sit on a beach in a comfy chair, turn on some relaxing music, sip on a tasty beverage, and watch as the sun slowly melts away on the horizon. There is something therapeutic about it, I think. People on the beach all seem to freeze and finally allow the busyness of life…
