You would assume that one quite lengthy blog post about the Sun and windows was enough for humanity, but no, there’s more. Well, not a lot more. But more. We have an important development, because we are now progressing from theory to practice*. Actual evidence coming in from the front line. The results are in and they look good.
So, today I woke up*, left my gloomy bedroom and trudged into a living room beaming with sunshine. The Sun poured through the medium sized windows like.. [simile goes here]. I literally gasped, then danced, and gasped a little more. It really does fill me with energy, and a positive feeling. To see the Sun beaming in for the first time in months; it lifted me immediately. I felt like a significantly friendlier version of the Superman 5 movie villain ‘Nuclear Man‘.
But before you rush off to watch the movie. I should say that the villain and the movie are much better at explaining how one can get energy from the Sun, than they are at being a good movie. It was actually described by numerous critics as being the worst superhero movie ever. In contrast to that, it currently ranks as the #379th best analogy ever*.
Theres an old proverb about the Sun which says;
No matter how tall the mountain, it cannot block the Sun.
Which maybe true for mountains but, not so true for curtains. After months of anticipation, waiting for the life and energy giving qualities of the Sun to return. I finally sat there, in a beautiful moment. The Sun on my face, the warmth and the light lifting me with every second. Well 423 seconds to be precise. As that was exactly how long it lasted before I closed the curtains to stop the light reflecting off my laptop screen. Modern life and all that.
* If things continue in this manner, I will soon have to rebrand myself as a science blogger.
