Watch a Sunset:

            Early this evening I watched a most gorgeous sunset.  Near me I observed sweet, well mannered and well dressed children of different races yell, "good-bye Sun," as the bright yellow ball sunk! They  were joyful and hummed the Sesame Street song as they were leaving. But in my experience...
     The setting sun with a muted darkness spread across the freeway and into my neighborhood conjuring up a level of grief and the anticipation of sadness, parting and the end of a day. I say good-bye to my adult child today and am filled with both gratitude and grief.  So, is this what you'd call good grief, Charlie Brown?
