The empty nest has other advantages, like taking my afternoon nap bathed in the light of west facing windows. The nap habit began as respite and escape, in a season when anxiety and night terrors crept in relentlessly and darkness stole my evening slumber, leaving behind a physically and mentally exhausted shadow of me.
The nightly haunts of the moonlit hours eventually receded.
The comfort of napping remains.
then a dream:
I am bathed in the beautiful light of west facing windows.
I can feel the warmth of the sun.
The century-old newer-vinyl-sided west wall has been altered, replaced with a brilliant expanse of new windows.
Light caresses my being ... pulsing Brightness.
