|calm after the storm (so to say)|
When the heat wave and my migraine subsided, I started to feel, of course, a great relief but also, a sweet tranquility and a sparkling joy. It was like I was looking at my life for the very first time and I found it so interesting and rewarding
Waking up Sunday morning was a tiny epiphany, a moment of great and sudden revelation:
I realized the stunning light which was coming through the windows, the silence only interrupted by the strokes of the clock in front my house, the fresh air in the kitchen, the shrill of the kettle, warning about the boiling water, the savor of a delicious cup of tea (the first one in four days)
I drank it calmly, while in the bedroom, husband and kitties were sleeping like angels. I went for another one and ate a couple of simple cookies.
...And I sang softly to myself: what a wonderful life!
