You talk of the sun setting
The sun hasn’t disappeared
It is you who have rolled away

This made me laugh since it reminded me of someone I once knew and fortunately rolled away. 🙂
Really glad to get you laughing. 😀
This is fantastic! Great aphorism here.
Thank you. You are very kind. 🙂
There are several of these types in my life and them rolling away sounds divine. 😉
So may it be.
Someone willingly fell into a shadow – how appropriate considering the title!
We talk every day of the sun “setting”. Even though we accept intellectually that the planet revolves, in a “gut” level we remain at the pre-Corpernican stage.This analogy can be applied to a number of our attitudes that are still woefully anthropocentric. 😦
Thank you. Some things are so obvious … that no one sees them. 🙂
