Sunny Day

Sunday, February 25, 2018

The last couple of days, I've noticed it to be sunnier and hotter, so I've been getting some midday sun, even for just a few minutes, especially when I am feeling sluggish or sick.  This usually makes me feel a little bit better.  And I've noticed animals do the same thing -- like chickens and dogs -- laying out in the sun.

Believe it or not, when I first came to the Philippines during the start of Coconuter, the sunshine was one of the simple joys of being here.  For some reason, a bright sunny day just seemed to uplift the spirit and help make you feel better.  The Philippines is close to the equator, so you get this all year round, though it is sometimes mitigated during the rainy season.

I especially love that sunny vibe when it is at a rural setting, out in the jungle or mountains, or by the waterfalls or the beach.  Unfortunately, none of those are nearby in Manila, so I will have to do with the relative quietness and occasional breeze from laying out on top of the roof, with the trees swaying and rustling nearby.
