    I Miss It :(

    I need sunshine just like everyone else, but I cannot have it.  I have lupus and a trip out on a glorious, sunshiny day means looking like Mata Hari!!  I must first slather on a quart of sunscreen making sure I  miss no spots.  Aah, then I go in search of...

    I have a little porch swing

    and it's my favorite place.My special little spot where I go to recharge.I just sit out there,listen to music and soak up the sun.I love the feel of the sunshine on my face.If I don't do this every day I just don't feel right.

    Sunshine

    Who can live without that bright, golden veil of heat? Can mornings be the same without the sun's ray patterns on our curtains or the sheer light that gently nods our eyes awake? Can I live without the smell of sun on my hair and skin? Not me. Can't live without it.

    Moving....

    After this installment of my education is finished, I am breaking free from the land that seems to get the majority of God's tears and find somewhere blessed by sunshine. At present, am considering seriously Vancouver

    My Need

    So much of my life has been spent in the dark. Hiding from outside life, hiding from my past, my fears, guilt that eats you up. Something I noticed when I would be in the midst of some deep dark depression was the need to cocoon myself away. Locked in my bedroom. Once I realized...

    Only to Dry My Washing

    I just need the sun to come out just for a little while to dry my work uniform ready for tomorrow! Once it's dry I don't care if it rains until tomorrow, in fact I hope it does because then I won't have to worry about watering the garden - Hee hee, I'm lazy!

    Wrong Place For It Though

    Especially In the Winter

    I need to see an eyeful of sunlight at least everyday and a small amount of exposure in the spring, fall and winter help keep the blues at bay.  I feel grateful that Colorado has close to having sunshine every day out of a year, but I still struggle a bit in the winter. Full...
