Yesterday's setting sun in car mirror

Reflections of the setting sun: 20th September  

After a day spent in Chinon, Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil and Bourgueil (reports to follow) under a largely grey sky, the sun finally came out towards the end of the day. We caught the final rays as we headed along the road from Sublaines to Luzillé.

A few minutes earlier on the A85 autoroute

In my rear view mirror the sun is going down
sinking behind bridges in the road
and I think of all the good things
that we have left undone
and I suffer premonitions
confirm suspicions
of the holocaust to come

"Two Suns in the Sunset", Roger Waters, Pink Floyd (The Final Cut)

Bleaker than this is hard to find.

Maybe Neil Young could do.

Hervé. Thank you – it is less bleak in the Loire!
