If we were having coffee I would tell you while the weather here took a weird turn towards fall like conditions last week we seem to have turned right back around and summer is here again, with a vengeance. We’re back to 90 degrees and sweaty conditions but that break really helped and now I think I might survive the summer after all.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that last week was a good one. I spent a lot of time writing, reading, listening to music, goofing off because there isn’t a whole lot of work to be done at my job. There are few better satisfactions then you day job paying you to do your own thing all day.
This coming week I won’t be so lucky but I hope to have a little of the free time I had last week.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that right now I am all about writing more poetry and prose. I have a few drafts I’m working on and I am trying to get my brain to think less literal and to “flow” more. I try to think about how things feel and what they are like, and about how words sounds and how they mean different things all the time. It’s been really fun!
I plan to combine that thinking with my love for long-form, nonfiction to start creating more interesting and informative pieces. Facts that sound beautiful.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I am getting more and more excited about the summer ending. When summer ends things are going to change at work. I’m going to have less stress and more time off to focus and actually doing something with my life. I want to start taking pictures and drawing and making things again.
It’s been so long that I have been doing little more than working , eating, and sleeping, and I have forgotten what it is like to do something that make you feel good. I thought being an adult was all about being bored and I have learned that is bullshit. I want to have fun and I want to be creative.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that I had better go, today we are celebrating my nephew’s 7th birthday and I have to start getting ready. He’s my favorite kid in the whole world so this is kind of a big deal for me, plus I might actually get to go swimming too.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend and thank you for stopping by to chat with me :)
