This illustration from the new edition of To Know the Stars (my book for children) shows Sun and Earth, and the distance between them as a folded line.
The Sun, which was rising from the summit of Golden Cap, this morning came into view out of the hill’s southern face, the highest cliff along the whole south coast of England.
Having returned from seeing it, I did some more reading about the religions engaged in mutual slaughter in Iraq.
What does the Sun think of us?
Earth is a crumb infested by small organisms that fight each other.
