Hello darkness my old friend
Midsummer evoked a sense of comfort in me… Mostly because I knew it brought forth longer nights, cozy evenings & roaring fires. But also because at that point summer’s certainly not ready to relinquish its hold for quite some time yet. So people will spend the next couple of months soaking up the warmth of the sun, bury their feet in hot sand, go hiking in the mountains or potter away in their own backyards. Some evenings are spent around bonfires with friends or late night bbqs on the back porch with family...it’s such a great time of year.

Alone or not, don’t let it go to waste. Get out there & enjoy the warmth & bounty of the season, cause sooner than you know, the night will bathe in my favourite light & nature will change its cloak. Admittedly, I yearn for that time of year with cozy sweaters, the smell & colours of autumn. But for now I’m perfectly happy nibbling on the berries in my garden & laying on my son’s old trampoline looking up at the clouds drifting by & the occasional plane flying overhead…daydreaming about what my life would’ve been like if I had followed my heart & gotten on one of those instead of staying here tending to other people’s needs...
Anyway, it’s dark outside & my son handed me a plate with a gooey brownie which I baked earlier…so now I’m going to snuggle under a blanket, eat that (hope that it won’t make me puke) & watch an 80s movie with loads of violence.
