The extra heft of my bag had me regretting absentmindedly leaving my camera inside when we went out yesterday evening.
But then we came across a murmuration of starlings.
And as we watched, the sunset kept getting better.
And carrying the extra weight turned from a burden into the most glorious opportunity.
Even if my philistine offspring did ask me 'Why do you keep stopping the car when it's the same old sky?'
But it really wasn't.
