As we watched the sun go drop down on the evening of Solstice 2018, I was reminded of a practice I have done many summers in a row.
I call it The 60 Sunsets of Summer.
Basically, you commit to being available to watch the sun go down 60 times in a summer. If you start right now, you'll make it through the end of August.
In doing this practice, I have found amazing things happen. For one thing, it takes quite a while for the sun to go down. For another, the sun moves in the sky as the planet rotates. For example in this photo above, the sun is far to the right. By August, it will be moving to the left.
In Hawaii, they have what's called "The Green Flash" which is the moment the sun goes down, you see a green aura. In Oregon, which is also on the west coast, we have something similar—there is a moment the sun dips below the horizon, and yet there is still light flooding the sky.
Making the commitment to watching the sunset—no matter where you are—brings up a few things:
• A flood of gratitude for the day
• A reminder that we are fragile, mortal beings
• A sense of being a part of this big wide Universe.
I invite you to take the 60 Days of Sunsets challenge—we'll return to it again, and we can see how we are all doing.
