The sound of the birds chirping outside my window and the sun slowly starting to peak over at me in the morning is one of the most nostalgic, best feelings in the world. There are very few things this moment reminds me of. It reminds me of Easter morning right before someone comes in to tell you to go find the hidden eggs, it reminds me of being in Palm Desert at my dad’s old house and it reminds me of a morning in quarantine.

In Palm Desert the weather was so warm, the pool was almost hot because of the beating sun and the smell outside was immaculate. I have always been a fan of the sun, but I am a frequent “I’m cold” kind of person. I am always cold, unless I am wearing a long sleeve and some sweatpants, even then I might need a hoodie or a blanket. However, being in Palm Desert made me happy because it was always warm. 

I would run out into the living room, the screen doors were open and the sun brightened the whole room. I felt so much excitement. Except when you’re that age, probably 6 or 7, you're not aware that you are supposed to take it all in. But being a kid makes it easy to take things in. I think when we are children, we take things in more than we do now because everything is sort of new to us. That is why our childhood memories, the ones we really remember, are so vivid. 

Anyway, I’ll always remember the sound of birds chirping, the sun shining through and the smell of fresh air, as the sounds and sensory details that surround my memories of Easter, childhood, and sometimes Shutters on the Beach off of Ocean Avenue.

Preconceived Notions

I have come to the conclusion that I cannot get too excited about things, and I am often perceived wrong by people. I am looked at in a couple of different ways which allows for preconceived notions.
