Here Comes The Sun!
Here in the greater Chicago area it’s not difficult to feel down and out. The gray clouds and cold temperatures make even the simplest tasks exhausting. This is how I normally feel from November to March, except there’s no ocean.
I’m not sure when I became so sensitive to seasonal changes, it’s not like I’m old, right? …ahem. With warmer temperatures and blue skies around the corner, I know I’ll be in a much more positive mood — It’s not unusual for me to experience little bursts of euphoria, moments when I believe anything is possible. These bursts coincide with the advent of lighter days, spring and summer, and sometimes a full moon. What? I’m just saying. Here I am at the peak of my euphoria running on the water.
This little clip is from last summer when I was practicing my Olympic dives. I think I have pretty good form, don’t you?
Now that I’ve used up most of the gifs that I was saving, and made this great little post, which will undoubtedly annoy Harper Faulkner, I’ll just float, relaxing with my mystery lover in Lake Michigan. (Just kidding – Lake Michigan is FAH-REEZING! )
