Sun Gods

'Cause here in Hawaii one easily gets carried away by the emphatic conclusion of a good book...


The one big suprise is that as it turns out, God is the sun. It makes sense if you think about it. Why we didn't see it sooner I cannot say. Every day the sun was right there burning, ours and other planets hovering around it, always apologizing, and we didnt think it was God. Why would there be a god and also a sun? Of course God is the sun. Simple, good.

Everyone in the life before was cranky, I think, because they just wanted to know.
