Lots of people have been trying to convince me that sunrise is this beautiful moment and it’s so amazing and peaceful and gorgeous and blah blah blah blah. Morning runners can keep drinking their crappy kool aid because I have now officially witnessed the sunrise and the sunset over the Potomac river and I can tell you unequivocally that not only is the sunrise no big deal, but the sunset is infinitely better looking. It’s not even a toss up like picking between which one I love, the Yacht Club hotel or the Beach Club hotel, there is no contest.
For those of you familiar with The Phantom Tollbooth, sunset always makes me think of Chroma the Great because of all the beautiful colors. If you haven’t read it, I’ll include the clip from the movie but just know that is this something that has to be read. Basically, Chroma saves his best work for the evenings.
