As the World Turns

Seeing this picture of mine in Sangha-e this week reminded me how the sun sinks in the sky once we get past the Equinox - it is something that everyone who goes to eat lunch in the City Center courtyard remarks on at this time of year. This photo is from the 21st of September, but if I had taken the same photo today, the entire scene would have been in shadow, as the sun is cut off by the roof line and only shines onto the walls of the dining room now. I think Dogen would call this 'wondrous function'.
