sun's path

Manhattanhenge: the celestial wonder when the sun aligns with Manhattan's grid.
On Friday (and just after sunset Thursday), the sun will center itself on our east/west grid
so that if you stand far east on a main cross-town avenue (14th, 23rd et al)
the sun will fall from view as if cued by a divine, city-loving, God.

And the Burmese junta has agreed to give visas to allow in aid workers, (even while extending Suu Kyi's house arrest). Too slow, too cruel but there are still miracles, even in the confines of our modern world.

(look to the heavens).
