The summer sun. It energizes our mornings and gives you a reason to sit in its bright shafts and throw the curtains open and closed and open again. Some days, when I feel tired or down, I sit with my back to the screen door and let the warm light pour over me. I nurse you there often. The sunbeams encompass our bodies, cuddled close, and lend a little light, little gleamings of hope, to the start of our day.
