After over two weeks of consecutive overcast days here in the northland, everything in town had taken on a dirty-snow uniformity. The relentless grayness had slowly eaten away at my soul until I forgot there had ever been a world that didn’t look like a Morrissey song.
Then, on Saturday, Demi the Elder and I were out running errands, and for a while I couldn’t understand this weird pain in my eyes. I squinted and blinked and then finally realized that this stabbing brightness was the SUN! And blue sky! And I was like an animal that had been dragged into the light after living its entire life in the depths of a cave, because it was blinding! I was BLIND!
How am I supposed to drive the Demigoddesses to play rehearsal in all this sunshine, now that my eyes have been rendered useless?
