#9. 15 minutes
Join us for 30 days minus 2 over at www.weworkforcheese.com
I open the lid and the steam escapes, disappearing into the moonlight.
First one step, then another as I step over the side.
As my my foot hits the heat I gasp softly, then bring my other foot into the warmth.
Slowly I sink down, heat enveloping my body as I sigh into the exquisite warmth.
I press the button and the water churns, swirling around tired limbs, massaging aches I didn't
realize were there.
I ease back and allow the relaxation of both my mind and body, gazing out into the starlit night, the
wind whispering through the trees like a forlorn echo.
My eyes close slowly hypnotized by the sensations and I breath in the silence... Only hearing the
sloshing of the water.
After what feels like only a few minutes the churning stops, the water stills it it is silent again.
I resolutely get up and climb back out, my 15 minutes of bliss over in what felt like an instant.
My hot tub beckons me to stay, but I know I can't go back in... Not until tomorrow.
