Afternoon Sun

I love afternoon sun streaming through the window, even on single-digit afternoons. Falling over my shoulders and spilling onto the desk top, it comforts and warms. From this tower window, the snow and ice sparkle, forming an enchanted kingdom below. Inside, the retro yellow bookshelves reflect the light and warm the space more than the humming heater beside me. The sun soothes and dissolves caffeinated anxiety. Years at this carrel, I have come to treasure the warm blanket of the afternoon sun.
