'The sun is in the West, the horizon is waiting its arrival. This is the moment when I feel most alive – eyes widest open. We can start a fresh tomorrow; we can try again to become a vessel of radiance. The last daylight has fallen, passed through my eyes, cast its shadows on my brain. I have soaked up every last drop. This last look is the most important as the sun falls. I carry it into the darkness. It holds me safe. In the morning, I release its light back into the world, like a Darkroom exposure.'⁠ – Garry Fabian Miller⁠
