Something You Don't Realize If You're Inside All Day

Today is a damn beautiful day. When I first stepped outside, I felt like I walked into anion her realm. I felt something that I'm not used to feeling. Then it hit me: I rarely get to enjoy the afternoon sunshine. 

I know that too much exposure to the sun isn't good at all (skin cancer and sunburns make no one happy), but there is something inherently rejuvenating about being exposed to the outside world. 

During the weekdays, I spend most of my time away from the sun. I work indoors. There are windows, but they're tinted and have shades. On the way to the office, the sun is coming up. On the odyssey home, the sun is going down. By the time I get home, it's usually dark. Once in a while I get lucky and get a glimpse of the sunshine for a few minutes. The only time I REALLY get to experience the true beauty of the sunshine is on the weekends. 

This is what brings me to here and now. This moment is spectacular. What I see is a beautiful piece of artwork formed by life itself. As rarely as I get to see it, I damn appreciate it.
