The sun can be seen as the universal icon for all life on planet earth. Without it, there would be no life on earth. The sun is one of the most fascinating mysteries of the universe and its beauty is unparallel. However, not many of us take the time to appreciate its beauty and all it offers us. The sun could be a source of great inspiration, if we’d only stop for a moment to realize it.
