and everywhere I turned someone tried to
tell me what it was. I accepted their answers
too, though they were often in contradiction
and even self-contradictory. I was naïve. I
was looking for myself and asking everyone
except myself questions which I, and only I,
could answer. It took me a long time and
much painful boomeranging of my expectations
to achieve a realization everyone else appears
to have been born with: that I am nobody
too hot for my comfort, 95 degrees,
which finally broke me down
and I turned on the air conditioning.
I made it to my local yarn
store and brought home a little
gift for myself, and think it will
be great in this pattern.
I put photoshop on my computer,
and have no idea how to use it, but
it's going to be fun learning.
Emerson, my all time favorite
person, is coming on Saturday
for a sleep over. There will be
time in the garden, playing with
all the animals, churning the ice
cream maker and chasing lightening
bugs. I can't wait!
Tomorrow I'm headed to the beach
to soak in the sun, listen to the waves
as they crash on shore and read my book.
Enjoy the most fabulous weekend
and please remember to be yourself,
you are wonderful!
