At the coast, where the sun drops beyond the ocean’s horizon, people gather just to watch. Witnessing a sunset is almost a religious experience. As the sun is in the air, people are running around, chatting, laughing, sipping wine. As the sun drops low enough to kiss the sea, the sounds start to subside. Kids become more still and all eyes focus on the orange ball. For 4 minutes, no matter the day, there is stunned silence until the sun disappears for the day. Some days there is even applause.
