equinox

A megalithic passage tomb could have been built exactly where I sit.

Twice a year, the setting sun slips behind the silhouette of a tree across the street from the library and on its way to the horizon, a golden beam of light shines in a window and blinds me in the left eye.

It surprises me each time, although it shouldn't - seasons pass, the world spins on and yet somehow, here I sit, constant as a stone.

Of course it surprises you, you're blind in one eye :)

This is 100% made of win.

It would be dedicated, of course, to the Goddess of Self Defense ...

Just God's way of reminding you to get out your Winter Holster.

It's Roberta X's fault - SHE linked to the comic. I just scrolled back a page or two.

The internet is a funny place... a few days before you wrote this post, I was in that very tomb.

Cool place. Some mighty short people built it, though.
