Everyday we discover new things, things that aren’t necessarily new to other people, but, they are new to us. Things, such as, how beautiful a word can be or how much energy the sun can give us.

Not that any weather forecast predicted it, nevertheless you still had a tiny bit of hope.  But, that will not spoil your day. You go downstairs to make some tea for yourself.
