Today was one of those days where nothing particularly remarkable happens, but everything seems a little more significant than it might on an ordinary day. I finally returned to my knitting group after undergoing a self quarantine due to mono (yes really >.<) and it was so nice to see my friends again. I’d forgotten how nice it is to just relax and sit among friends, all creating something out of string and fluff. I helped my friend’s daughter with a school project and felt energized about teaching, even with our brief phone discussion about her project. When I left to go home, I listened to Kings and Queens on repeat.
And then, I saw the Northern Lights.
Today was beautiful and sunny with all the promise of the final vestiges of summer, but a cool autumn breeze reminded me of the changing seasons.
I needed that breath of fresh air.
