Driving back from work, I glance in my rear-view mirror, and catch a most wondrous sight. A setting sun bathed in an orange glow. Surreptitious looks – like snapshots give me perspective and depth. I’m a collector of moments – and this is a precious find. A final glance, and this image of a floating sun is sealed in my mind- forever.
