As of today, we have about a week before the fall equinox hits and brings with it the end of summer. Honestly, I prefer autumn, but summer’s a popular season as far as seasons go, and as the summer sun sets and people return to their daily indoor lives, this week’s theme is “Sunsets.”
The image of a setting sun is a universal one; it always signals some sort of change, as one part of our lives comes to an end in place of a new one. It can be dark and unfamiliar, but often the most interesting things stay dormant until the sun has long since vanished.
But while there’s a lot of metaphors I could make, sometimes a sunset is literally just daytime turning into nighttime. We’ll have that too.
