"Sunrise, Sunset," 5 x 7 acrylic on card
"Sunrise, sunset, swiftly flow the years."
--Fiddler on the Roof
Perhaps the saddest song I know of because it strikes so deep in my heart as a father, yet also a favorite.
Why? Because this season, as another year draws to a close, these truths sung by an aging Jew fit the mingling of happiness and sadness that is always part of the Christmas season.
Those words, and this season, bring back the mountains of memories with family, especially as I get older--as another sunrise and sunset pass.
