There is a special feeling when the sun shines through the window near which you are situated. It is delightful when the sun is not so bright as to cause strain on your eyes, but bright enough to illuminate your space. I am seated next to a green plant; the sunlight makes the plant look more vibrant. That reminds me, I have to water my plants. Adds that task to his TODO list.
I just took a sip of tea from a pot of green tea I ordered a while ago. The tea is now almost too astringent to drink. That feeling of astringency, although drying on the tongue, is fascinating; immersive. You can't help but think about the strange sensation on your tongue. Long story short: don't leave green tea in a pot too long, especially when the menu advertises the astringent qualities of the tea. I digress.
Going back to the sun shining. When the sun shines bright and lights up a room, I can't help but think about the seasons. Spring is indeed here. The trees are green; the bushes are growing. It is getting warmer. This cafe was already warm. The sun shining through the window provided some additional heat. In the moment when I realise the sun is shining on my work surface, I smile. I take joy in the scene, and long for the sun to continue to shine throughout the day. I see many grey clouds in the sky, but the sun is coming out. Although now I find my eyes under a little bit of strain. The place where I am seated is perhaps not the best place to experience the sunlight in this room.
