Why so many pictures of sunsets?

They are all from one sunset.


People all over the world are awed and comforted by a beautiful sunset. It doesn’t matter where they live or what language they speak or how they believe the universe works.

That, in and of itself, should give us pause.

Before discussing differences, we need to focus first on what we have in common.


The second reason for all these pictures is that to remind us both that the sunset is not just a picture — it is a process. It is panoramic; it is colorful to look at and that’s what we typically do.

Nothing wrong with that.

But the sunset also *guilds* things in various ways — some obvious and some rather subtle.
Anyway, where you are, it might be too rainy for a nice sunset tonight. So, you’re welcome to imagine this one is all around you. I can’t make that happen with a few pictures, but you can, using your imagination. What the heck. Give it a try.

A different day’s sunset.

A sunset painted this.

Every sunset is somewhat different.

The picture, of course, is never so peaceful as being there. But a picture plus your imagination can be.
