warm again, pale again

The sun’s strength is returning. The next few months of the season always seem like the hottest to me because I haven’t adjusted to the higher temperatures. So, as happened yesterday, mid-seventies feels hotter than the high nineties of late summer.

There’s also something about the angle of the sun at this time of year. It’s still low enough in the sky to creep under your hat brim with its clear winter sky induced intensity.

I dug down to the bottom of my drawer today to find my running tank to match the warm weather. I sure am pale. Pale skin plus intense sun plus new heat equals a big bonk sometime soon. Maybe right now… I’m off for a run…
