This morning the sun rose almost exactly in the point of a “V” of sky in the mountains to the east. From here on, by the time we see each morning’s sunrise, the sun will be higher and higher in the Earth’s atmosphere.
This morning’s sungazing experience filled me with a sense of peace and contentment that seems to extend even to my fingertips. Even though I gazed at the face of the sun longer than the time called for in my conditioning regimen, already I am finding that my eyes are readjusting more quickly to normal light levels than on the first day of the experiment.
It is a beautiful clear day today, and the temperature will probably get into the high 70s or low 80s. There is not a cloud in the sky and now that we have our new solar panels installed, there will be no danger today of running low on power. Autumn is our most perfect season in West Texas, the time of the year when good days are most bountiful.
I will be enjoying the day indoors, however, devoting most of the day to helping a friend develop website copy for a bed and breakfast he and his wife are opening. Then in mid-afternoon I’ll drive to Alpine to meet Paul so he can spend the weekend at home.
I’ve got coffee brewed and music from the thirties, forties, and early fifties loaded and playing, and I’m well on my way to having a mellow day.
I hope yours is mellow, too.
