A typical sunset

The sunrises and sunsets here Down Range can be quite splendid.

Recently, SFC McG and I went outside the wire via convoy so I could say Mass for the personnel there. As Mass finished and we were on our way back to the vehicles to mount up for the journey back 'home', I noticed the spectacular colors of the western sky as the sun sank below the horizon.

In this view, one can see an aerostat silhouetted against the luminous clouds, and in the foreground, in front of the ever-present blast walls, the ubiquitous porta-potties.

Ah! Where would we be without *them*?

Life is good.

Easter blessings and peace to one and all,

Fr. Tim, SJ
