Equal parts darkness and light
Today is the Autumnal Equinox. That's where the tilt of the earth's axis is at an angle so perfect in its symmetry that one half of the world is filled with light, while the other half will be shuttered in darkness. The earth normally leans away from or towards the sun. But not today. Today the earth stands upright and neutral, neither leftist or right-wing in its tendencies. Everything in equal shares.
In honor of this annual phenomenon, which gives inspiration for a story where the equinox figures prominently, I give you Death Cab for Cutie:
Goodbye Summer, hello Fall!
