Let the sunshine in!
by Stacia Love on February 28th, 2014

Driving to the gym enjoying the frosty sunrise, a radio voice reading Dylan Thomas' ''rage against the dying of the light'' drew me in. I had randomly tuned to LCC Radio 89.7 FM and there was Melissa Kaplan, a former co-worker, sharing news from LCC's Performing Arts Department. [Made me smile.]

​On the way home, the blue sky and bright winter sun on the sparkling snow had me singing boisterously in the car, ''Let the sunshine in, face it with a grin. Smilers never lose, and frowners never win.'' [ Made me laugh. ]

Back at reZüberant, I wanted to HEAR the song in my head, so I Googled youtube versions and found a retro Stuart Hamblen version. [Made me sing louder!]

Wanting to share this sunny mood, I searched for images of sunshine to post on my Facebook. Up pops Edward Hopper's ''Morning Sun'' linked to a blog harkening to (are you still with me??) Dylan Thomas and entitled ''Going Gentlly Into That Good Night.'' [Made me think, ''What a coincidence!'']

​My brain was whirring about Dylan Thomas poetry and my interest was piqued about the works of Edward Hopper, especially the paintings featuring sunlight streaming through windows. I found several sunny works, including ''Chop Suey.'' [Made me want to go out to lunch.]

As I am writing this, listening to mvyradio streaming live from Martha's Vineyard, the radio DJ has informed me that today there will be ''lots of sunshine in Newport.'' [Made me realize there is DEFINITELY a theme here!]

Open up your heart and let the sunshine in—it will make you feel SO reZüberant!
