All I could think about these past days was escaping indoors from the oppressive heat that seems to have enveloped our area. From early morning to late evening, whether working or lounging near the pool, I couldn't help but visualize lush green fields of wildflowers, cool skies dotted with heavy clouds, or endless rains falling upon my parched skin. It's probably going to be a long time before my idealized version of paradise occurs, at least a month or two, and so I'll have to just grin and bear it until fall arrives or the heat-wave brakes. Marathon viewing sessions of Masterpiece Theater and Downton Abbey will certainly keep me pleasantly distracted, as well as the ongoing project of still more editing (of personal possessions). As each item is carefully wrapped and presented lovingly to its new owner, or steward, as we've all come to realize in this walk of life from birth to death, I feel a certain lightness, almost like floating across a calm blue sea. And I'm loving it . . .
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
