It is best not to get into the habit of looking at anything that is declining – the sunset, leaves falling in autumn… America

It is best not to get into the habit of looking at anything that is declining – the sunset, leaves falling in autumn… America
"It is best not to get into the habit of looking at anything that is declining – the sunset, leaves falling in autumn… Of course, the sky at sunset is a magnificent sight with all those colours merging into one another – how can we not be lost in admiration? And when the leaves fall from the trees in autumn and are blown away by the wind, we feel pleasantly melancholic and think of the passage of time… Why not?

But if you truly want to be visited by faith and hope, it is better to look at what is being born, at what is blossoming. Having watched the leaves falling in autumn, do you pay attention to the new buds and flowers opening in spring? That is when nature is giving you something precious. And if you feel the need to bathe in a pure, vivifying atmosphere, go out in the morning as early as possible to contemplate the rising sun."

It's Friday guy.

Nature's first green is gold
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

Sunset, leaves falling, and the rest of natures is cyclical. One keeps us from burning to a crisp, the other is part of pollination.

Fall leads to spring and spring leads into fall.

Without death there is no rebirth. The world around us has always functioned in that way.

As for America, all we can do is hope that on the other side will be a better "spring" than the current state we find ourselves.

Seems like you get get in the habit of thinking of sunset as the birth and beginning of a new night, not the end and death of a day.
