Letter to the Sun

April 20, 2011

Dear Sun,

You are so kind to shine so brightly

Thanks for slowing my walking pace so as not to break into a sweat.

Your bright rays try to reach me as I cower behind whatever object that provides me shade (a telephone pole, small bush, palm tree, etc.)

You scorch my skin daily providing me with a killer (farmer’s) tan.

You dry out the land making dust cover every surface, requiring daily mopping of floors.

You have provided a new understanding of what “hot” means. Never again will I take air conditioning for granted.

Now, could you move a side for a little while so some clouds and rain can come through? I’ll probably be wishing for you to come back again in a few months:).

Much appreciated,
