You explain to me that when the sun is lower in the sky, it goes through more “air stuff”; atmosphere, molecules, dust, pollution, whatevers. That filter makes the sun easier to look at. When it’s high in the sky, not at an angle like it is now, there is less stuff, less filter, which make our eyes ache from the brightness. I am about to ask you what is between us, in all this air stuff that makes it hurt for me to look at you, when I notice you are not looking at me.
