Topic: Landscapes

Today while riding in a trunk I witnessed a glorious sunset. It looked very tranquil; with clouds covering a great big shinning disk in the sky. Then I considered the way I think about the Sun, the star Sol that our home world Earth orbits around. I often take all the energy it gives for granted. I remember learning that some ancient cultures worshiped the sun as a god, like a fatherly figure. Then I considered that some cultures also consider the Earth to be out mother. Who is the Moon then? Is it our sister? “Hey Sis, so is it your job to occasionally brighten the night sky with light reflected from Dad? Well, I just want to say we appreciate that, Thanks! It really is helpful for us humans down here trying to make our way around on mom at night time.”
