      I frequently stare at the sun, especially in the evening as this man below
      does. I have been doing it for years...ever since I was blessed with a vast
      amount of ancient information about this very thing. I do feel I receive
      nutrients, information, and much more during this process. It looks like
      finally science is catching up. With love, Cynthia
