In a quiet house we sit after the end of a long day at work. We have a drink to relax. Our mind is tired. It is getting darker but we make no effort to get up and turn a light on. Soon, we are entombed by the darkness. If you are thinking this is a symbolic look at what life sometimes becomes, you are correct sir, but there are alternatives. The long slow fade needn’t be a fade at all. With the help of the teachings of the ancients, it can be a bright sunset that brings us great joy.
