The Sun God

The Sun, the hearth of affection and life, pours burning love on the delighted earth.” Arthur Rimbaud

Beautiful shot. I had a very interesting conversation with my son about the sun yesterday. It hadn't occured to him that all energy on earth ultimately comes from the sun. Makes plants grow, we eat the plants, or animals eat plants, and we eat them. He then said "but what about when you plug something in a socket?" How do we generate electricity? Burn fossil fuels, once dinosaurs or coal. Without the sun there would be no flowing water so no hydro power either. Interesting to think about, isn't it?
