This morning, I walked through the park on my way to work. I stopped for a few minutes on a bench to drink my coffee and breath in the fresh air before I headed into school. It was cold this morning, there was a frost on the rooftops and a biting breeze. But I had on my cozy winter coat and my cup of coffee, so I was happy. The sun was shining and the tree branches above me were swaying. I watched the sun dance through the leaves as their speckled pattern splayed out across the grass. It was the perfect calm before the onslaught of the day.
