I spent today in the tropics meditating on the Gospel and reading a novel I just started and listening to "The Planets." I missed my usual trip to the Caribbean this year, so today I got a piece of it.
The winter sun is still so low on the southern horizon that it fills two of the south facing rooms in my home. In the room where I was sitting the thermometer in the shade registered 85. In the neighboring room where the thermometer is in the direct sun it registered 105.
I wondered how much healing power the sun has after it passes through a window. I'm sure the beauty of the sun sparkling on the snow creates in me a bliss that promotes mending.
I took the picture later outside the back door.
