Pointing at the Sun

This is a song that Cheryl wrote over the course of several months. She started writing it in Maine November 2007, wrote the first verse December 2007, and continued to work on it in February 2008 in Minnesota, and then finished it at home. Here is a live version of Pointing at the Sun on YouTube.

When Cheryl was in grade school, the diagram of an atom looked a lot like the solar system. This got her wondering if perhaps an atom might be a solar system, and perhaps our solar system is an atom in some huge universe. (I remember having the same theory myself when I was a kid.)

As suggested by the title, the song mentions how plants always keep turning to point to the sun. Cheryl has always been fascinated by the sun.
