Sunshine On My Shoulders

We've been having the most exceptionally fine weather here for the past few days. I thought I had worn my flip flops for the last time this year but I should have known October had one more surprise left for us. Growing up, and even into my thirties, I was always more of a spring person but I swear the older I get, the more and more I love and appreciate fall. Spring is still special but autumn speaks more deeply to my soul these days. 

This morning (in the sunroom again) the warm sunlight fell on my face and shoulders and I got that hugs-from-heaven feeling once more. And then of course I started humming along with John Denver (who was singing in my head)...Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy...Sunshine almost always makes me high... 

Then I had the idea to snap a few photos with my iPhone throughout the day of all the little magical happenstances I took notice of. But in so doing, I just kept being drawn back in to the welcoming warmth of that October sunshine and realized that in and of itself was more than enough. So I just soaked it up at every pause and turn and thought, Perfection. Plain and simple. Perfection. 

Late October sunshine accompanied by gentle breezes, abounding trees entering into their most radiant forms and temperatures in the upper 70s, with low humidity. Weather simply doesn't get any better than this. It's like October is practically shouting for us all to pause in our daily pursuits and take notice of the miraculous transformation/show of brilliance that is happening right this fleeting instant. 

So I did; I soaked it up...

And it made me happy.
