Here Comes the Sun
The front wall of my office is a glass door and a plate glass window. In the summer, this means the AC can be going full blast and it is still ninety degrees in the room. However, on those beautiful sun-filled winter days it is a treat. Now, I have never been a fan of winter. There are few things I like less than being cold, but winter does have a its own wonderful pleasures. One of my favorites is the experience of stepping into a car that has been sitting in the sun on a cold winter’s day. The warmth in the car is like being wrapped in a warm blanket, the kind of warmth you get from flannel pajamas, hot chocolate, and lazy Saturday mornings spent reading in bed in your flannel pajamas with a mug of hot chocolate beside you. I love that feeling! Well, in my office, as the sun sinks throughout the afternoon, my whole office fills with that warmth and I smile.
