Now, I know why animals love the Sunny Spots on the Floor!
Yesterday was a beautiful fall day that verged on summer. (After school is back in session, I consider the days as fall.)
The curtains were open to allow in the light, the sun beam was huge, and it was warm! This time, I noticed that there was no one curled up behind me. The sun pierced the window, shining on the bed, and it was warm. The warmth of the sun through the window penetrated my skin and soaked into my bones. I lay on the bed and allowed myself to be nourished and caressed by the sun. I lay there slowly turning like a cat, then turning and curling up like a dog, and I understood.
These moments in the sun were physically some of the most privileged moments I have experienced. I absorbed the joy and elation of the chemicals churning in my body, brought on by the sun's warmth.
I warmed up and deep within my a joy spread through my body. The sun's rays felt like tentacles massaging my legs. Then, I heard a "Meow." I lost my space. Marvin needed his sunbeam back. Still, it was worth it. I do get it now. I really do!
