of blue waters and dolphins.  The little house looked out over the ocean, with ocean a constant presence from the porch. Standing in the warm, shallow water, a tiny yellow and black tropical fish kept us company before heading off to the safety of the rocks nearby. And then the dolphins came...playing in the deep water just to our left. And then one came up to check us out.

What's this?? That bright light coming through the window this morning? could it gosh, yes, I think it's the sun! Hello sun, It's been a while. You disappeared as soon as May started. Yes, you hung around really well in April, and then, May *poof*, you were gone. Where'd you go? I missed you!! And I'm glad you're back. Thank you!! I love waking up to having you peeking through the window. It makes it so much easier to get up and get going...the days you're not here, well, those days seem to just weigh me down like the mist that hangs over our heads; all I want to do then is mostly sleep, but I can't. But with you around? Well, take this morning. I opened my eyes, and there you were, shining down through the window and I got up-didn't fight or fuss, or pull the covers over my head. Noooo....just yawned and stretched and got up. And the alarm hadn't even gone off yet.
