a little sunshine

A little sunshine can do a world of good. We've had epic snow, biblical rain, and now, SPRING. The daffodils have bloomed. The birds are singing. The sky is brilliant blue. We took the dog to Falls Rd and walked through the park. There were an amazing number of people there, but everyone was in a spectacular mood. The dogs were joyful. We walked in the woods, saw the new buds opening. Even the skunk cabbage was stunning, brilliant green against the mud. There is a smell -- a sort of damp earth warmed by the sun smell that is one of the greatest things on this planet. I got to feel the sun on my back, and I could almost feel the rays spread through my skin strengthening and healing my body from the winter.

It's a small thing, a walk in the sunshine, but it accomplishes so much.
