For most of us, there is only the unattended Moment, the moment in and out of time, The distraction fit, lost in a shaft of sunlight, The wild thyme unseen, or the winter lightning Or the waterfall, or music heard so deeply That it is not heard at all, but you are the music While the music lasts — T. S. Eliot

With your silhouette when the sunlight dims Into your eyes where the moonlight swims, And your match-book songs and your gypsy hymns, Who among them would try to impress you? -Bob Dylan, "Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands” (1966) — Bob Dylan

You wouldn't think such a place as San Francisco could exist. The wonderful sunlight there, the hills, the great bridges, the Pacific at your shoes. Beautiful Chinatown. Every race in the world. The sardine fleets sailing out. The little cable-cars whizzing down The City hills. And all the people are open and friendly. — Dylan Thomas

To the extent a grid is committed to using solar and wind, whenever sunlight or wind increases, the grid has to cycle down controllable power plants, and whenever sunlight or wind decreases or disappears, it has to cycle up controllable power plants.

To me, the most important part of winning is joy. You can win without joy, but winning that’s joyless is like eating in a four-star restaurant when you’re not hungry.

Vitamin D isn’t actually a vitamin, since our body can make it naturally from chemicals in the skin on exposure to sunlight.

Thorns may hurt you, men desert you, sunlight turn to fog; but you're never friendless ever, if you have a dog. — Douglas Malloch

30-60 minutes of bright light exposure may increase cognitive performance and alertness. Early morning sunlight, rich in blue light, interacts with the melanopsin photopigment in our eyes, which acts as a light sensor, effectively synchronizing our internal circadian clock. This interaction dials down melatonin, the sleep hormone, ushering in alertness. Concurrently, there's a sharp spike in our cortisol levels, known as the cortisol awakening response. This isn't just about feeling awake; it's directly linked to enhanced cognitive clarity and performance. Consider aiming for 30-60 minutes of outdoor light exposure in the morning for a symphony of neurochemical shifts that benefit cognition and mood. — Rhonda Patrick

Waves of a serene life pass over us from time to time, like flakes of sunlight over the fields in cloudy weather. — Henry David Thoreau

Service
