Time . . . because will you see the next sunset?

We have an art gallery in our church. A recent display featured the work of Leonard Minni, an artist who lived in Rwanda before during and after the 1994 genocide.

He visited our congregation to tell us about the theme for his exhibition: Time.

The crowd listened in awed silence as he told us that many of his pieces involve sunsets, because when he watched the sun set during the trauma in 1994 he wondered if he would live to see the sun rise, and would he live to see another sunset?

The art of Leonard Minni

One never knows what life holds.

Savour moments as precious. Soak up those sunsets. Be mindful with your Time.

  1. Learning to appreciate the beauty around us would certainly be honed by the reality of never being able to see it again, wouldn’t it? I cannot imagine living through that kind of horror.

  2. Thank you for the admonition, Arlene. This exhibition hits home. I fear one of the members of our extended family will not see many more sunsets. TIme IS precious; life IS fleeting.
