“Hey you with the pretty face,
welcome to the human race,
a celebration,
mister blue sky’s up there waitin’,
and today is the day we’ve waited for.”

It could be the after effect from being stressed for so many days, but when I first glanced out my kitchen window I was taken aback by how beautiful the sky looked. I have not completely beat this stream of anxiety, and there are things that are looming on my own horizon that feel weighted and almost dire, but I still awoke with that light and floating feeling that could be described as hope.

Although I am no fan of unseasonable warmth, especially during my favorite typically cool season of autumn, there is something to say about a predominately clear sky, dotted with a few billowy clouds, and the sun shining brightly that does lift one’s spirit. It feels like a jolt to the system, a weather-induced caffeine lift; it feels today as if someone has cleared my eyes for me, and gifted me a friendly nudge.

Perhaps the sun is what I need today, the somewhat clear skies (well, this is Los Angeles, after all), and a well-received good morning. My creative tendencies, and heart’s preferences, reside in autumn weather and overcast, rainy days; in those days I feel like singing, dancing, writing, talking for hours, in those days I feel most like myself. But sometimes, even a cold weather soul needs a little visit from mister sun.
