HNT – Sun

on

Being in the sun, I felt it chase away the clouds that seemed to be inhabiting my heart and head.  The sunbeams bore into me and chased away those shadows of doubt – those negative thoughts that had been plaguing me for days – those fears that had me spending more time in the shadows than in the sun.

As I was outside in the yard pulling weeds, I had this overwhelming urge to lay naked in the sun – let it permeate my whole being to burn away that fog that remained.  I followed my urges, stripped off my clothes, and laid naked in the hammock soaking in the sun.

A smile found its way to my face for the first time in a week.  I had the urge to go play with friends. I had urge to be social.  I had urge to laugh and have fun.  A total change from where I was hours before.

It’s amazing what a little sun can do for one’s spirits.

Only downside?

I missed a spot when applying the sunscreen. Guess I could have used an extra set of hands.

Go see Os for a list of others playing this week.
Or OHNT for more fun.

    You’re so great. Here’s to getting sun and happiness (and extra hands) whenever you need them.

    That looks like fun! I miss spots even when I’m semi-covered in clothing, I can only imagine what I’d miss if I had to cover everything with sunscreen. 🙂

  4. Damn you, double damn you…first one for the ability to sunbathe naked and the second? For taking a picture of you from the WRONG END. 😉 Loved it! Happy HNT!
