After over a week of cloudy rainy weather the sun finally appeared in the eastern sky this morning. It's amazing how different the world looks now basked in the bright glow of sunshine. In honor of the return of Sol I have compiled some quotes and photos for your viewing and reading pleasure.
Just living is not enough... One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.
Hans Christian Anderson
I've been waiting for that bright sunshine to show up and shine in my back door someday.
October gave a party; The leaves by hundreds came - The Chestnuts, Oaks, and Maples, And leaves of every name. The Sunshine spread a carpet, And everything was grand, Miss Weather led the dancing, Professor Wind the band.
Sunshine is a welcome thing. It brings a lot of brightness.
Pleasantly, between the pelting showers, the sunshine gushes down.
William Cullen Bryant
The glorious lamp of heaven, the radiant sun, Is Nature's eye.
Following the light of the sun, we left the Old World.
Finally we shall place the Sun himself at the center of the Universe. All this is suggested by the systematic procession of events and the harmony of the whole Universe, if only we face the facts, as they say, 'with both eyes open'.
The sun, with all those planets revolving around it and dependent on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as if it had nothing else in the universe to do.
The mid-day sun is too much for most eyes; one is dazzled even with its reflection. Be careful that too broad and high an aim does not paralyze your effort and clog your springs of action.
Today a new sun rises for me; everything lives, everything is animated, everything seems to speak to me of my passion, everything invites me to cherish it.
Ninon de L'Enclos
I'm gonna soak up the sun
Here comes the sun.
I need to laugh, and when the sun is out
I've got something I can laugh about
I feel good, in a special way
I'm in love and it's a sunny day
Good day sunshine
The dawn is breaking. A light shining through.
