I'm so glad you gave sunsets 5 stars! Partly because it seemed unlikely from the start of the essay, but mostly because in so doing you've rejected cynicism. I love sunsets. I live in Manhattan so rarely see stars, and the moon likes to hide behind the tall buildings in my neighborhood. But the glorious colors. of sunset are always there for me to see as long as I am out and about to see them. And I am truly grateful.

This latest episode on Sunsets has produced the strongest emotions that I've ever felt listening to a podcast. Beautiful words, John.

I did not expect to be crying at work over a bird song, but here we are.

My heart aches. so sad to hear a bird species last song. what will record the sounds if the human races last whimper?

The temperatures in my Uni classrooms in summer were so low that I regularly brought a blanket to class and was still cold. Naturally, I wear shorts in the summer because it's sweltering outside, I bike and sweat easily. Sitting for an hour and a half in a cold classroom was only made worse by the fact that we're destroying the climate at the same time. I also hate going shopping in summer because the stores are freezing. Why does everyone say they love the sweltering temperatures of summer but then expect every building to be so cold?

Thought I'd let you know that I was brushing my teeth and my brain went down the rabbit hole of 'I'm going to die some day and life is just a holding spot for me to fill with activities that distract me from the fact that I'm going to die so what's the point?' Then I remembered your thing about the sycamore trees and was pulled up back out of the spiral. So thanks.
