“Marilla, isn’t it nice to think that tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it yet?” Anne of Green Gables
Your suspicions are correct this is a sunset and not a sunrise as one might expect to be paired with this quote. I chose this picture on purpose and with several justifications.
1. I am not and will never be the kind of morning person who gets out of bed early enough to have a sunrise photo shoot
2. Anne shares this nugget of pre-teen wisdom at the end of a particularly trying day
3. The comfort in knowing that the new days is mistake free has its most balm at the end of a day full of mistakes, not in the morning when the day is new and mistakes are waiting to be made. No, to be able to go to bed at the end of a hard day and be able to sleep peacefully comes about with the hope of a clean slate in the morning.
4.I took this photo on my honeymoon last summer. We were on a sunset cruise on the Gulf of Mexico off the Florida coast. It was toward the end of our trip and was the most peaceful I had felt since I started planning the wedding and the move to Kentucky. It held the hope of new beginnings.
