Sun catcher

Turning on the desk lamp at 2 p.m. isn’t normal. Cloudy days. A staple of winter, it seems. At least there’s inside light.

Typing, typing, typing. Moving papers. Crossing things off the to-do list. Adding things to the calendar. Then something in the window catches my eye, lingers in my peripheral.

Is that the sun?

Pens down. Time stopped. To the window! Pull the open blind up higher. Stand for several minutes taking in the momentary brightness knowing it will disappear again. Notice the shadows streaking across the lawn, through the bare branches of the trees.

Soon, it’s gone.

Back to the desk. Pick up the pen. Write a note. Return to typing. Smiling because I caught the fleeting moment while it lasted.

*No, I didn’t take the photo. I was too busy taking in the moment. 🙂

  1. I hear you. I find that if I do catch a glimpse of sunlight during the winter, I linger at the window. Enjoy what you can, I guess. And then turn on the lamp and pay the power company!
