Dear Sun

Dear Sun,

Come back. Please come back. I know, I know...I was just saying a couple of days ago that you were obnoxious. It was only because your awesome brightness was hurting my eyes and unSPF'd skin. Really...sunscreen on Dec. 21?

Yesterday was Winter Solstice Day you know. The shortest day of the year. All of God's majestic planetary glory aside, I miss you. Without you I've become a slug. A slug with a Snuggie.

Today it's cold and because of Nina something you cannot break through the clouds. Since you only stick around for a short time I will find myself with another unproductive evening. Darkness falls and so do I.

Does this have something to do with me OOOing and AHHHing over that beautiful red moon the other night?
It was a phenomenon, Sun. Really. A once in a while kind of thing. It's my Mom's fault you know. She was the one that pointed the Moon out to me.

I do miss you. I miss how you'd peak through the kitchen window while I'd do dishes. You would cast a radiant glow over the dinner mess and cheer me on to finish my chore. Rah rah. Now there's only darkness and it's making that meatloaf dish seem like something recyclable. It's easier to toss. What are they, like 5 bucks with a rebate from Bed Bath and Beyond? See? See what I've become without you? I'm a mess.

I can only wish that you read this and understand how important you are. Until your return I will try to go on with life. I'll go Christmas Light viewing and try to get something out of the darkness the Moon is so proud of this time of year. I will be waiting for you. Waiting with my 75 SPF, grandma hat and pool floatie.
