No, I mean I’m not crazy and I don’t think it actually takes a long time for the sun to set or rise. I’m pretty sure it always takes the same amount of time, but go with me here.
I guess when we consider our lives, they are a series of sunrises and sunsets. Things arise in our lives and then they set. They disappear. We forget about them and other things replace them. Those sunsets in our lives, they can take longer than we think they are supposed to. Or we hold off on the letting things sunset in our lives because we think if we hold on to them, they will become real again.
Sometimes its time for a sunset, so something new can arise in its place.
