I am an early morning worker, so I am intimately involved with the sunrise. I never used to be, but since having a shift that begins at 7 am, I monitor the morning light with intensity.
And TODAY, TODAY, the sky as I was pulling up to work was half indigo. Indigo, as opposed to black. I almost started to cry with joy that God blessed me with the view. First, because the indigo sky is so beautiful and, second, because it is the beginning of the end of this particularly bad winter.
I know that winter always affects me so strongly that I actively have to work to keep my head on straight. I know that I have to keep myself especially warm to improve my mood, work out consistently, get enough sleep, and eat right. I’ve been doing that all winter, while watching the sky every day since December when the last little glimmer of indigo in the morning was gone, replaced by black night.
So, happy First Day that Roberta can see Indigo Sky on the Way to Work! You may want to make it a holiday, because it is the first sign of spring.
