Basti and I went to the Leopold Center for some nature time this evening, just to run around and enjoy the sunset. We found tons and tons of bumble bees on the big yellow prairie flowers, and they were so docile, feeding on nectar at sunset, that we could put our noses right up to them. Afterward, we sat on the pier and watched the light disappear from the trees. Feeling lucky. And remembering that nothing lasts forever, or even very long at all.
