Silent Sunday: Sunset

"Softly the evening came. The sun from the Western horizon like a magician extended his golden wand o'er the landscape; twinkling vapors arose; and sky and water and forest seemed all on fire at the touch, and melted and mingled together."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"Is there anything more beautiful than a beautiful, beautiful flamingo, flying across in front of a beautiful sunset? And he's carrying a rose in his beak, and also he's carrying a very beautiful painting with his feet. And also, you're drunk."
-Jack Handy

I'm sorry. Ordinarily these Sunday posts are an attempt to match inspirational words with pictures, but that Jack Handy quote just cracked me up.

OMG. It's cracking me up, too. Whenever I see a flamingo with a rose in its beak, carrying a huge framed landscape painting with its feet, I will think of you.

“I hope that someday we will be able to put away our fears and prejudices and just laugh at people.”

That's my fav Jack quote

I do like the idea of a flamingo with a rose in its beak

Ohhh, I was so serene after reading that first quote. Then I read the second one - and spit out my tea.
Good one, my friend.
