I am one of those who, everyday, watches the sun rise and set.
It is for me a way to remain aware that we are part of nature, of a cycle of day and night, and of a movement vaster and faster than we can ever imagine.
Watching the sun rising and setting does not require a view upon the sea or even a large window, a small patch of sky suffices.
Days are filled with activities and noise, so I like the simplicity of seeing the slow lightning up of the sky announcing the start of a new day in total silence. And I like taking a few minutes from the hustle and bustle of a late afternoon to witness the sun setting, even if it is a simple reflection on a glass pane.
Every dawn and every dusk are distinct in sights, with different colors and sometimes birds flying across the sky; and in sounds, with silence or the echos of thunder. Each rising and setting of the sun has its own atmosphere, and I am grateful for being a witness to it all.
These are simple pleasures really, reminding us that beyond the fracas of the world, there is serenity and there is beauty.
