Somehow those hot and humid days of summer became etched into my retinas.
Until the last couple of days I couldn’t actually believe that you could go outdoors and sit in the sun – YES – in the sun – without expiring (and perspiring) in a matter of seconds.
Why can the heat have so much more power than the perfect?
The last two days in the afternoon I have taken my tea and my book (…er, Kindle) out on the sunny patio upstairs and stretched out in a lounge chair for a bit of a break.
I read a bit, then put the book down and shut my eyes. I relaxed in the sun for about an hour before getting restless and getting up. That’s a lot of time, for me.
But the thing is, I didn’t get hot. I didn’t burn or perspire. It was just perfect! Yes, perfect.
I think I’ll do it again tomorrow. I’m trying to etch the perfection into my retinas, you know.
