Keeping things quiet over here as summer comes to a close and the days start filling up with work, commutes, walks, weddings, and an impending move. The changing of the seasons is an opportunity to begin again, and for that I'm grateful.

Hello, sun in my face. Hello, you who made the morning and spread it over the fields and into the faces of the tulips and the nodding morning glories, and into the windows of, even, the miserable and the crotchety –
best preacher that ever was, dear star, that just happens to be where you are in the universe to keep us from ever-darkness, to ease us with warm touching, to hold us in the great hands of light – good morning, good morning, good morning.
Watch, now, how I start the day in happiness, in kindness.

As an ex-pool rat, beach bum, and redhead, this video was extremely difficult for me to watch. I've had countless sunburns in my life and have freckles in the most obscure places from my toes and elbows to my eyelids and ears. In the past few years, I've taken great measures to protect my skin. This video reaffirms, in a scary kind of way, the importance of sunscreen.
