Latinitas - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Like everyone else, I can appreciate a bright, sunny day. But It's always nice to get a break from the scorching El Paso heat and look into the sky without fear of being blinded once in a while. Today is one of those blessed days. This morning I woke up and opened my blinds to gray skies casting delightfully gloomy shadows over my neighborhood and it made me feel happier than a sunshiney morning ever could. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a moody, daylight hating vampire-girl. There's just something about the way an overcast sky makes me feel. It makes me want to reflect on my life and sip a cuppa tea. I want to bake scones, and read a book from cover to cover while snuggled in my bed. I almost want to boycott social media or the internet in general for the day so I can feel truly isolated and alone with my thoughts...Almost. Usually I refrain from going outside when it's super hot unless I absolutely have to. But on cloudy days I want to go for long walks outside, maybe go to the park and sit on the grass and wait for the sunset, which is so much better when it's cloudy. I feel a weird kind of nostalgia for something that hasn't happened yet on days like this. I don't know how to better describe it, but it's peaceful...and hopeful.  I'm grateful days like this don't happen very often in the Sun City, even though I love them so,I don't think I would appreciate them as much if they did.

Those days are beautiful because it is break, and it is something different!
