The days are getting a touch shorter, the breeze crisper and more fervently blowing. The air conditioner is off, windows wide open, the curtains in the living room billowing. I cuddle my dog who is enjoying the wind on his face as he sleeps. He snuggles into my arms. I decide to join him. I grab my laptop, a notepad and a cup of green jasmine tea. Sitting outside within arms reach of my dog, my freshly watered plants nearby, I too am covered in the soothing caresses of the breeze. I raise my head and squint my eyes as I take in the patches of blue sky and white clouds. There is grey too – rain may fall this afternoon. Soon I will wash and iron clothes, clean the floors and prepare a cooking plan. Later, my dog and I will walk to the park. We will raise our noses to the breeze again and we will feel that indeed there is still some heat left in the atmosphere that cannot be felt at home. I will feel the muscles in my body remind me of the workout we did in another nearby park this morning – the three of us out together as the sun was rising. Then home again, I will switch on music and make my darling husband a delicious, healthy meal. I may happen to look up at the right time to see the colours of the sunset. I am happy.
