The Sun Also Rises

The Sun Also Rises 3x5 oil on canvas


We get up in the morning, get cleaned up, eat breakfast and go to work. The sun also rises. . . or does it? Seems to me that’s a fallacy like almost everything else in our minds. I mean, really, the sun doesn’t rise or set. Relative to us, it’s fixed in the heavens. It doesn’t move.  However,  the Earth sort of falls into the sun but is held in place by centripetal forces and the gravitational forces of the cosmos. Don’t you agree? I wonder if it’s the same with us? Maybe we’re just sleeping. Maybe we don’t get up in the morning. Maybe we’re still sleeping. If so, Hey! Wake up!
