Author’s comments: There is a time in the fall when the setting sun catches the leaves of the trees and sets them afire. For me, it is one of those flashes of brilliance that reminds me of our one life here on this earth, and how the most breathtaking moments can stretch into what feels like eternity. When I am feeling down or disconnected, I can find myself in the Rock Creek Park. My head and my heart clear of the weight of this world. And I remember that my life is more than the sum of my failures and accomplishments. We are that endlessly burning sunset fire.
