Golden Light Oct 22

Driving to the light-rail station this morning, I went past a field full of Canadian geese. I went past it at just the right moment, when the light illuminated the world and made everything shine golden. These moments only last a short time, and it's always just as impressive to see. Every feather, every blade of grass, every shining drop of dew, every spiderweb and every little detail of the world seems more vibrant...

I got past the field and drove through a copse of trees, and on the other side, everything was normal again. The golden light was gone, the heightened sense of the world was gone...until another time.
