A Room with a View

I hate tanning but I enjoy sitting in the sun. Not too long, just enough to feel its warmth on my skin. Then I put my sweater back on, even in the heat. I don’t want to burn my skin.

There would be no human life on earth without the sun and yet, the sun will eventually swallow up the earth. A red giant burning up a tiny blue planet.

We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows

E.M. Forster
