Feel the tiny pebbles underneath your tender soles on the cool concrete of my lanai. Wiggle your toes. It hurts a little. We haven't been standing on pavement for the entire Winter. It's time to be sock-free and let our pale feet shine. Once we get comfortable -- no tiny sharp points jabbing our heels -- breathe with me. Close your eyes. The Sun's warmth invigorates our entire bodies. Breathe in. Breathe out. Before we open our eyes, just listen. Feel the wind caress your face.
Let's try this again! On the first day of release from isolation due to the Covid-19 pandemic, my sister and I will re-visit the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. We will actually get past the Zoo entrance with our validated money-saving coupon.
