Irresistible Rest

When I come upon my cat, Merlin, resting in the sun, it's irresistible: I'm drawn into the light.

I have to get right down beside him and let the warm sun greet my face. Whenever I see cats lounging in the sun, I remember that's there something more important than laundry, cleaning, baking, or grading. There's something more important than all the gazillion things I'm supposed to check off my list.

Right now, it's more important to turn my face to the sun next to my cat. We close our eyes and enjoy the warmth of it, and the whole day feels much better and more manageable.
