Split Sunset | Roberto's Taco Shop | July 19, 2015 | 7:57 P.M.

Taco shops are a fine place to consider the nature of life, one’s deepest connections to spirituality, and the history of mankind. The thing is, I don’t frequent this particular taco shop, but it was clear that some sort of force brought me here. Some might say it was the carne asada burritos. Or the relevance of time and space. I say, six of one, half a dozen of another. The intensity of the golden hue of the sky shifted, splitting into what appeared to be two moments happening in one. Like a figurative chimichanga that deserves a moment of silence, so are the days of our lives. Can I get an amen with a side of guacamole? Lettuce pray.
