La Vita in Rosa
(this is Monte Vesuvio right outside of my hotel window, covered in pink clouds)
(all of these pictures of the sunset were taken in less than thirty minutes)
Do you ever have those moments where after time has passed you close your eyes and that one moment seems to have been permanently frozen behind your eyelids? That's this moment. October 29th 2017 - I had woken up that morning in dark, rainy and cold Copenhagen an ended the day in Italia with the people that I love the most in the world drinking wine before, during and after the most incredible sunset that I have ever seen in my entire life.
If you know me than you know my obsession with sunsets; I think that they are one of the most beautiful phenomena on the planet and the fact that each day the earth puts on a spectacle to signify the end of the day and slip into darkness is such a beautiful metaphor and a promise of hope for what's to come after a period of rest. October 2017 had been a hard month but in this moment all was right in the world as I thought about my trip earlier that month to Venice and my incredible weekend in Amsterdam the week before and about how after several weeks in dark, rainy and cold Copenhagen here I was once again with my parents in the most beautiful place on the planet. Time works in the most peculiar way; it seems slow but in reality everything happens in the blink of an eye. You change. People change. Things change. Sometimes all we need to remind ourselves about how fast this life goes by is a sunset like this one for me in Sorrento, Italy to remind us how precious life is and how lucky we are to be in the place where we are - the people we meet, the experiences we have, everything that life gives us shapes us into the humans that we are today. For everyone who I have crossed paths with in this lifetime so far I want to say thank you. thank you for helping me become the woman I am today. I am truly humbled to have had this incredible life that I am living and to have made connections with people all over the world.
Sunsets give me all of the feels not to mention the connection that I have to Italy and all of the special memories that it holds for me in my heart.
La vita in Rosa. I choose to see life for what it is - beautiful.
