For weeks the weather has been grey, overcast, rainy, windy and generally gloomy. This lowers the spirits, dulls the intellect and makes life just that little bit more wearisome. However a little bit of sunlight and suddenly everything is uplifted, your mood, the world, everything.
Today the sky is blue, the air is clear, and the sun shines brightly at a low winter angle that reflects back off the still damp roads. Yesterday was miserable, tomorrow will be grey again; so this really must be enjoyed. I was out early to enjoy the sun rising and see the light develop. When in the park I say a group of four or five squirrels scurrying up trees and leaping between branches (it was difficult their number because they moved around so much). I just stood and watched them, entranced by the agility, enjoying the peace. It was a perfect example of a fleeting moment.
