I’ve never seen the green flash. It’s a sunset phenomenon wherein just after the sun slips below the horizon there is a flash of brilliant green.
And I must tell you that if someone said they had seen it, well, it would be suspect. It is just a flash afterall. Anyone could say they saw it and the world would be no different.
But still I wonder: is this instantaneous burst of color real–or is it just wishful thinking?
I tend to believe slow things. Rocks flattened by glaciers and Saviors that take three days to rise.
And yet there I am at sunset and staring through slow minutes…hoping.
