Given my condition, it is hard to appreciate the things. When coffee doesn't taste good. When standing is a challenge. When my good hand won't work. Many of the little things become a struggle, not a respite.
One of my favorite things is to watch the sun rise. This morning it was particularly spectacular. I took a photo, but pixels don't do it justice. The way the diffuse light softened the Flatirons brought goosebumps to my arms. Or maybe that was the cold outside when I took the photo.
Being here in person felt like magic from some of my favorite fantasy books. Or maybe Lando's cloud city in Empire Strikes Back.
I wish everyone could enjoy the view that I appreciate every day (not cloud city). I hope that sharing this photo brings a glimmer of a smile to your lips.
