Into the Light
For the first time in months, rays of sun fall through the window in the afternoon and land on your arms, warming you as you type on your keyboard. You look up to find the gray winter sky has been replaced with a hopeful blue, no clouds. Birdsong floats on the air. On a whim, you decide to go outside.
You find an empty bench in the park and sit, pull out the book you brought, and start reading. The sun envelops you, and suddenly it's too warm for your jacket. Moms with strollers and couples holding hands stroll past; from somewhere behind you, a boombox plays a song you almost recognize. You meet eyes with a guy sitting at a picnic table with a sketchbook, hand sweeping across the page. How can he even begin to capture the beauty of this day-the crocuses rising from the ground, the stained glass of an art installation coating the concrete in color, the earnestness of the trees trying on their green?
Suddenly, you feel elated. Lighter. You look around furtively before slipping off your shoes and setting your feet down into the grass for the first time since last summer. The earth squishes beneath your toes, so alive. The sun shines on your face and you know deep down that it will all be okay.
