A post for Tuesday

Occasionally there comes a cloud dark enough that your eyes really have to adjust to the world around you.  It's not the sun has gone away.  Otherwise you couldn't see at all.  But the cloud hangs so largely and with such thickness that its shadow causes pupils to dilate, squinting to identify, and a wondering of what kind of world we really live in that it could get that dark in the middle of the day.

The sun isn't gone.

It's just obscured.  And to such a degree that darkness rather than light is the topic you talk about.

But the sun isn't gone.

It's a heavy kind of darkness.

But the sun isn't gone.
