Will it ever come back, Mama? I’m cold.”

Maybe one day it will, Sil.”

And one day – it did.

  1. It’s sad that her only memory of the sun is a big orange ball. Orange means the sun was in its fleeting moments of appearance for that day…and she could only get a glimpse of it. It’s also poetic in a way, the sun bidding her adieu.

  2. You know what I thought of? Like a science fiction movie…or that Twilight Zone where the sun is moving away from the earth… I know I know….I’m stuck on the TZ
