It is good to feel the sunlight on my skin after weeks of chilly, rain-spattered days. I turn my face to the sun and feel myself unfurl.
My toes curl in anticipation of kicking off my flip flops and feeling the dewy grass beneath and between them.
It is early morning and I am alone in the world, just for a few moments. I need this space, this pause, to gather my thoughts and my strength for all that lies ahead.
My head is in the clouds but my feet are firmly grounded.
