“Most of us have heard of the elusive green flash. The optical phenomena that prompt people from around the world to stand seaside facing the sun. With eyes transfixed on the horizon, we wait to catch a glimpse of the green rays that suddenly shoot outward from the upper rim of the sun. Legends say that once a person has witnessed it, they will never go wrong with matters of the heart again. No wonder so many long to see one.

Returning day after day at sunset, feet firmly planted in the sand, eyes fixed on the sun, we patiently wait for our infamous love…the green flash.

Matters of the heart from this day forward will be perfect.” read more
