Shining Brightly

The sun never seems to shine as brightly as it does in Manhattan on the first 80+ degree day of the Spring/Summer season. Maybe its all of the reflective services for the suns rays to bounce off of. Maybe its the sheer energy of the city. All of the people sharing food and drinks outdoors, the beauty of the parks and all of the flowers blooming around fountains and on medians...and me being part of it. That's right! I got off of the couch and out of the house this weekend. I met up with a good friend and we shared good wine, great appetizers and hours of chatting. At the end of it all, I felt so much lighter...despite all of the guacamole we inhaled. It was fun not to focus on the downside of my jobless life and just laugh and eat. It energized and renewed me and now, despite my situation, I have hope and I am shining brightly...bouncing off of life's reflective surfaces and hoping my positive energy bounces back my way.
