There must be something deep in the human psyche that is programmed to respond to the sunset.  It's a dramatic transition from light to dark and the dissolution of our earthly surroundings.  Our attention is drawn to fading light and other places, a sense of time passing, --- a sense of longing.   Even the ugliness that may surround us is gone for a few hours to be refreshed in a new day, perhaps washed clean from the morning dew.
