“Hey you with the pretty face,
welcome to the human race,
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.
