VAUCRESSON, France | The sun peeped through the blinds, stirring me from my hibernation. Smiling sleepily I freed myself from my blanket chamber. Pulling a soft woolen jumper over my head, I brushed my hair and walked out the front door.
As I stepped onto the cobblestone street, the icy morning air caressed my cheek and my eyes adjusted to the glaring light.
Happiness swelled in my chest. Sunshine, It has been too long.
