Today while I was out walking in the humid, sticky weather, the sun came out and a breeze picked up. I stopped my walk, lifted my face to the sun, and just kept silent for a moment. It was one of those pure moments of joy that are too infrequent for me these days. In seconds it had passed; I turned my MP3 back on and continued on my walk home. Someone leaving their house across the street must have though I was a bit balmy; they pulled away s l o w l y from their parking space.
I've been going through a rough patch and some good things are starting to happen, some are staying the same, and some are still questionable. Today to have this brief moment of calm, joy, I don't really have an adequate word for it, but it was like a confirmation. My heart was lifted and though the moment has passed, the memory is almost as good.
