Today I noticed the light. I woke up very early and it was still gray outside but by the time I left my house the neighborhood was filled with a warm pinkish glow.
Although I was inside all day, It was in a building with glass walls. We were high above the city and I was able to observe the city awash in gradually strengthening shades. At one point in the early afternoon I walked down a corridor that was drenched in ochre. This was not the light of a month ago. This was the light of regrowth.
I arrived home early in the evening around 4:30. It was not dark yet. Far from it! Although the light was hastening on - there was strength and resilience yet in its glow.
