I can still feel the warmth of last week’s California sun even though it is a 15 degree day. There’s something magical about seeing a palm tree against a pink sky, picking lemons in the dead of winter, photographing orange poppies, and seeing my children laugh outdoors while just wearing short sleeves. Too bad I never appreciated it during my childhood. But I sure appreciate now—especially since I slipped on ice while going to my mailbox today. Help me.
“I'm gonna soak up the sun
While it's still free
I'm gonna soak up the sun
Before it goes out on me” –Sheryl Crow
