The inexorable slide to darkness

Sitting here, in this spot, as I do, I can watch the sun set every evening.
Until a two or three weeks ago, it was clearly headed north.
Past couple of weeks, it got hung up.

Pretty sure after the past two nights it's drifting south again.

We're talking about the sun moving back towards the dark.

Just about anybody older than a beetle noticed this not so long ago.
And now it drifts back again in silence, its light replaced by the glow of iPhones and Androids.

No one warns children not to stare at the sun these days.
The sun is still here.

We've figuratively left the planet.
We're literally losing touch with what matters.

You don't have to give it up...just step outside.
