Most often lifestyles are of landforms, and living closer to the sky allows for various vantage points. To watch the sun shine at the moon as its light creeps up the side of the earth; to know which faces would be privileged to view its last setting glow, as the earth tilts forward again, and you fear falling on your face.
Unless I time my routine walk to and fro home and work, the sun steadily hides behind me, continually warming the back of my head. Yet, it is still a miraculous and calming sight to behold as it blankets these lands each morning with its yellowing warmth, only to disappear with the hours and a fleeting promise of return.
