they call her sunshine

Seeing sunlight makes me happier regardless of anything else going on in my life. Lately I've been taking time to notice how the sun hits certain things at certain moments.

  2. Love these photos. Love that you're taking the time to notice. Can't wait to see more of what you're seeing.

  3. Natural sunshine is a beautiful thing. Spend enough time in a windowless cement building and you'll miss it.

    1. My old job was the worst building. The office I work in now I can see out someone's office window if I peek over my cube walls. Not TOO bad.

  4. I loved the through-the-blinds one :) Every time I think about sunshine now, I think of "Sunshine" by Robin McKinley and how Rae, when she was sick as a child, would move around the apartment during the day so as to always be lying in the sun and then she got better. There are some truly beautiful descriptions of sunlight in that book.
