I Got Some Clarity

I live in a very cold part of the country. I have to bundle up with long underwear and many layers of clothing before I can go outside. Sometimes I’ll open the front door and feel the cold wind and air on my exposed nose and it’s too much and I quickly close the door. I have to put on even more clothes and my ski mask before I can even think about trying to venture out again.

Last night the Sun came to me in a dream. It said, “Look, you’re actually a sun too. You took human form to see what it’s like to feel sunlight. You made yourself extra sensitive so you could realllllly feel it.” I said, “That makes sense. No wonder the cold bothers me so much. It’s the anti me.” The Sun said, “Yes!”

I woke up the next morning and ran outside in my underwear. There was a blizzard going on, but it didn’t bother me. I felt quite warm. Actually I started sweating. I was so relaxed. I even started skipping.

My next door neighbor came out in his winter outfit and said, “Brooks, are you crazy?! What the hell are you doing?!?” I sang, “I’m the Sun!!!” He nodded and said, “Oh, I see. Okay.” I think he understood because of my strong conviction.
