The heat broke like a fever. From dawn to dusk today there was no hint of muggy uncomfortable warmth. I write this as I sit in front of my open window in my apartment, letting the breeze wash over me like the healing balm that it is. I haven’t felt this in months, this perfectly pure, immaculate, untainted cool air. It smells like fall. As always, I didn’t realize how much I needed this until it came back.
I know the heat will return before it’s gone for good, probably with a vengeance. But this day is a promise of so many better days to come.
