Perspectives on Being Well
The Sunlight Cure
by Jared Rogers
“Ô, Sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth.” – Roman Payne
Thick clouds roll in overnight, blanketing the earth while everyone sleeps. Rain drizzles in the morning and a handful of complaints are overheard about the gloom. You, being the positive mind you are, do not fret. Clouds and rain can be peaceful, after all.
The next day begins with the same dimness. The clouds float by in droves more densely than the day before. Not much is said about the transient masses overhead, but the energy in your environment is distinctively melancholy.
