After a bout of terribly sunny, warm weather here in Chicago, today was right up my alley:. upper 60's, storm clouds everywhere, and occasional light rain.
But I did NOT go out to enjoy it. It's been a very draining week for me mentally and physically--feeling very alone, sad, worn out, and disappointed.
I just wanted to stay in on my day off and hide from the world....and I do think that is okay.
At least I got some rest and a couple art projects done since the house finally cooled down.
Later this evening I stepped out into the backyard for several minutes just to see what I had missed.
Tonight's impressive scene from the yard
I watched sky blues unsuccessfully try to overtake deep grays while cool winds tickled treetops.
It was just enough. I don't think I could've enjoyed anymore right now if I tried.
I keep telling myself there will be other days, Dean. There will be other days.....
