Yesterday and today I spent all day in the sun, basking like a lizard in the warmth. My skin is unused to such affection and I was rewarded with a blush of sunburn. Yesterday, it took the shape of my v-necked t-shirt as a small red patch on my chest; today it was my arms that, newly exposed, took the brunt of the rays and are now rosy-pink.
In my haste to enjoy all the sunshine I possibly can, I forgot that winter here is long and makes skin forget the power of the sun. I pay the price, gladly.
