I’m dazzled. By the brilliant sunshine today. Because I choose to be dazzled. I could take the sun matter-of-factly. As just the same old thing. But it’s not the same. I’m overwhelmed. By the brilliance of the sunshine.   I’ve consciously noticed it. When on other days I wouldn’t have. That makes the day special. Because I took the time to savor something. To see and taste the full effects of a beam of light that took approximately 8 minutes to arrive from the sun, which is 93 million miles away. I’m also feeling the warmth. A reminder, of course, that the sun is a huge furnace. Don’t want to get too close. Better to take advantage of a sunbeam. –Jim
