I know that conventional wisdom suggests that we should shun the sun. It’s bad for us, it can give us skin cancer. However, the sun gives us life. Life on earth would not exist but for the sun. The Incas and other civilisations worshiped the sun and with good reason. They recognised that the sun was life.
Where am I going with all of this? Well to put it frankly, the sun makes one feel good and I for one will not cover up and cower in the shadows. I can’t take heat, heat is not good for my MS however, here in the Canary Islands, in early March with a constant cooling breeze, I can enjoy the sun and enjoying is what I’ve been doing. This mega dose of ‘feel good’ is just what I needed. I can recommend it to anyone. Having seriously depleted vitamin D levels after a dire winter in the UK, I can safely say, I’m now nicely topped up.
This picture was taken at dawn this morning from the small fishing village of El Cotillo, looking south along the coast to the mountains, the extinct volcanoes that form the back bone of these islands.
