To each his own. To me my own.

The Positive Pool

I yearn to get back to writing about positive things, at least for the most part. It’s not like me to take a dip in the negative pool and decide to hang out in there awhile. The fact is – a lot has happened over the past several weeks that makes me question the intentions of certain individuals, as well as life in general. I plan to give my best shot at moving past it all. There’s really no other choice – I simply have to.

Once again, the ocean makes it’s seraphim call to me; the mountains cry out for my mother. Any extended travel plans have been postponed throughout the summer months, which of course we wouldn’t have had any other way. Soon I plan to answer that call from the sea, and I hope my mother will be able to do the same. She so deserves to get away.

As hot as it is, I still find myself wishing for the summer never to end. The linger of warm sweet nights help fill my dreams; the sweet smells of all things living permeate my senses. Summer is so easy. Less clothes, easier to dress – pleasant weather, easier to travel –just easy. Please hang around a little while longer, summer…

Summer is the time when one sheds one’s tensions with one’s clothes, and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit. A few of those days, and you can become drunk with the belief that all’s right with the world. ~Ada Louise Huxtable

    Beautiful scenery for sure – and you’ve got that right! I think we both deserve a getaway after what we’ve been through – too bad we’ll be at opposite ends of the state – oh well, we will meet back in the middle. 😉

      You bet we will, Mom. And we’ve still got that beach trip needing to be scheduled that’s been put off twice. Love you 🙂

      Thanks dear Vix – I’m finally resolving myself to the fact that it’s an ‘it is what it is’ kind of situation. One break, comin’ up soon. 🙂

      Thanks Cocomino – yes I’ve always said if I hit the lottery, the first thing I will buy is a small island. It’s nice to dream about!
