This evening, while on my way to Anacortes to deliver tofu, I was stunned to see an evening sky with two suns. In all my decades of living, I’ve never seen an illusion like this. For a few minutes, I was transported to a solar system, millions of light years away, with a central sun, and a second sun orbiting the main sun along with all the planets.
A second sun brings up all kinds of possibilities of many more seasons, day lengths, and calendars.
What did the swans think of this two sun sunset? As they grazed watching the two suns set, did they imagine taking flight on a planet, far, far away?
