Being Nowhere

I just practiced yoga. It was amazing, so naturally I now feel amazing. I am in Hayfork, California. It has been cloudy for the past couple days, when finally out of nowhere, patches of blue sky and sunlight fill the world around me.

Since I grew up in the Northwest, I should be well accustomed to this constant grey, but for some reason I can't shake it off. I want the sun to wake me up and show me that each day is full of so much light.
