On March 4, 2014, the author of a blog I follow had an interesting perspective on what he has learned from sunsets. See post http://www.weblessyourheart.com/2014/03/10/sunsets-gift-volume-1-of-10/
“I have to believe that the same particle that left the sun on a million mile journey, the one that avoided everything in its path, hit my face out of a billion on a rotating planet. Everything happened because I had to feel that warmth. On that day, in that moment, I needed that warmth in my life.”
As humans we like to know we have purpose. But sometimes I think we are merely to bask in the sun’s warmth on a cool day. Or walk on the warm sand with our bare feet.
