As the sun starts to dip below the horizon, it’s light travels a longer distance. Atmospheric particles act like prisms and refract the light, giving sunsets their color. The red, orange and pink tones are what we see because of their longer wave lengths, the blues and greens have shorter wave lengths and scatter too much to be visible to us.
Was listening to some dude going yap, yap, yap about himself last night, and I found my brain going on a little adventure. It literally shot up into the cosmos. Things are so sparkly up here. Then I looked down at this Manhattan rooftop and there he was still yapping: I'm so great, somethin' about a hedge fund, and trying his darnedest to angle his gold watch in my face. And there I was, thinking about flying across Manhattan with my Eurotini to a better rooftop. Could I take off from this ledge? Sure I could, but I forgot my cape. People look like single cell organisms from outer space.
