There is heat again. It is slowly seeping through the radiator holes. Soon the couch and the walls and the toilet won’t be cold to the touch. I have already taken a steamy shower in my very own tub.

Every so often it takes something a little extreme to make me feel gratitude and overwhelming appreciation. Heat and hot water. Relaxing in my own home. Washing my dishes. Taking a shower. Walking barefoot.

Pure joy and warmth this evening.
