Years ago when I was just a tiny Vampire girl my mother told my brothers and I, “You do not like to embrace the sunshine or even like it. However, you do need to act as though you like it. One must fit into the world that is considered to be normal to succeed. You do not have to be what is called normal, you just need to give the appearance.”
Now more than a century later I have embraced the sunshine, not on my own skin, but in my yard. I grow daylilies.
This year they are doing spectacularly well. Enjoy. Wear your sunscreen. Wear your hat. Wash your hands. And never strive to be too normal.
