Buttons, Widgets, Logos and Sunsets

Another strange post, I am sure I can hear the comment..... It is, actually. I have been trying for weeks to get either a widget, a logo or a button on this blog. No such luck! I am so technologically challenged that no amount of instruction did the trick. At times I thought it was not important. I already have listed all my favorite sites, had joined every group that might help me get the word about my blog out there.....Still, it kept nagging me. Why can't I do this?

I am determined, if nothing else. Trying was frustrating and exasperating, following instructions and not getting results was the worst. SO...I finally gave in and asked my son. Bliss! all was well and I can look at my blog and see results!!! My friends would be so impressed....I know I am.

Now, what does all this has to do with sunsets? Everything! If I would still be living in Curaçao, every time I got in a tizzy about the buttons, widgets or logos, I would have gone for a walk at sunset. This soothing ritual always worked for me. I would have called my friend Kathy, picked her up and go walking. We would have gone up the small hill at Jan Thiel and reaching the top I would have looked upon the blue Caribbean. My worries would have melted away, right there.

Let me tell you about sunsets in Curaçao. I now that this Nature's show happens every where and every where people brag about them; but when the sun goes down in the Tropics something magical happens. It is like sensual dance across the sky. Then, you need to see these ones: there most be a thousand different kinds of sunsets that happen on this island and all are glorious! The amount of colors that appear, the play they make with the clouds, the dry heat, the sea and even the wind, make these displays truly unique! My love for sunsets is well known amongst my friends and I have made them admirers too!

So when I have one of these days, in this case weeks...., I miss sunsets more than ever. I know, you would say that I have just to step outside on my little island here in Miami and see the sunset....NEEE!!! We don't face West....so I can see some colors behind the concrete jungle that is Brickell Avenue, but not a complete picture. Sunsets in Curaçao are the thing and I am planning to go enjoy them again.

Hi Mercedes!
I have found a little escape online by reading your blog...love the description of the sunsets...Rochester, NY is known for its LACK of sun and sunsets so I am sure I will need to come back to this description during the dead of winter when things are brown, dead and cold out here!
