Comment: I remember hearing an old wives tale:

(See in situ)


I remember hearing an old wives tale:

that if a person observes the sunset daily, they would receive all the lithium a person needs per day. It was Sting who I heard it from and he even wrote a song about it: Lithium Sunset

This is what Sting had to say about this song in his lyrics book:

"A South American shaman told me that the human eye can't filter yellow light, so the lithium in direct sunlight goes straight to the brain. Quite how he knew that lithium is a constituent element in sunlight I didn't find out. He explained further that this was why it was good to watch the sun go down, to feel calm and at peace before nightfall and before the mercury falls again" (Sting 212)

Who knows?

Freedom is: not having to do what you don't want to do.
