A Day Out In the Sun ~ And the Better For It


A day out in the sun is good medicine. And I'm not just saying that because I'm sick and I was more than grateful that it was warm outside today, compared to indoors. The fresh air and warmth made me feel incredibly better. I stayed out there for over two hours and dozed in the grass or read my book. The outdoors take me out of my head in a way that makes things always feel more real. Even in going to work, oftentimes it's still like walking/working in my own head, even though I'm thoroughly engaged. Going outside, I don't even have to think. It's like everything is at rest, and my awareness is peaked. Accept when I was dozing, of course.

  At first I felt a bit guilty, because I had been in the middle of preparing another post, and I was technically supposed to be working, but after awhile I was just felt so refreshed, I could only see it as a good thing. I had the energy to come back and continue after awhile, feeling so much better, though still sick.

  It's a pity that so much makes me retract into my own head, and I need to fix that. I also need to have more days laying out in the sun like the identical twin of my dog.

  So--I'm glad I had a semi-break today. Enjoyed the warmth of the sun, and came back the better for it.
