I took note of the time as I re-entered my apartment. One hour until my jeans are done drying. I walked into my bedroom. A swath of sunlight fell across the foot of my bed, and the next thing I knew, I was soaking up the rays, watching the UV rays play with the hairs on my arms, changing color from red, translucent, blonde and brown--glistening in some spots. I closed my eyes and basked in the warmth, knowing that all things begin with the sun. Light, thoughts, life as we know it. I missed the laundry deadline.
