Letter to the Sun

Dear Sun,

You are so kind to shine so brightly every.single.day.

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,

    i would glady send you some of this rain that we seem to have everyday. i look up at the sky and ask: ‘How much more do you have up there?’ (and i actually say it out loud!)
    our garden is so soggy that i don’t know if we will even get anything planted for this year. maybe it is time for ‘the year of jubilee’ as it says in Exodus.
    hope all is going well for both of you. when do you move to your new home?

  3. […] It is that time of year yet again. […]
