I have been longing for the brilliance of the sun’s June rays.
They warm my skin which in turn warms my soul.
Optimism rises from the heat and mingles with the cold drink in my hand.
Memories dance across my mind – Images flash and laughter echoes.
The freedom of summer dwindles a bit each year with age in a literal sense
You can keep it alive within you.
The river bed is just a suggestion, the beauty is in seeing just how far it can go.
Find a new shore and enjoy the show.
I think what I like most about the summer is its ability to be dramatic. It can be sunny and cheerful one moment and then dark and destructive the next.
You think you can see the storm coming but you can never be sure until it arrives.
There is no preparation only experience.
It strikes me as the right way to approach the world
for me, for tonight, writing.
Summer flirts with ease.
Flowers offered with a promise.
My heart is your prize.
Basking without care,
Warmed by your summer embrace,
How quickly leaves change.
There is something special about Spring and the eventual arrival of Summer. This weekend in Colorado it is suppose to hit the 80s for the first time this year. I can’t wait to sit out on the patio with a glass of wine and write in the sun.
Do you have any writing plans this weekend?
Happy Friday Everyone!
One of my favorite times of the year is the middle of summer just as the sun begins to set. Dusk to me is a time when anything seems possible and that gets my creative juices flowing.
When is your favorite time?
I heard somewhere that Summer only lasts
Is that what causes this euphoria?
The scramble to find fun.
Heat rising from the concrete.
Cold Local Brew.
After all when the leaves change so will our
Something weird has been happening in Colorado the last few days, the weather has been amazing. We have seemingly with perhaps only a few minor hiccups remaining left winter behind. It is about damn time, I love winter but it has its place which should promptly end some time in March.
The nice weather naturally led me outside to frolic, yes I still frolic at my age. While I was out frolicking something funny happened. I realized I had missed almost all, wait I am always honest with you all, I missed pretty much all of my writing goals. I did not sit down for one minute last weekend and work on my blog and any other various project for that matter. Instead I focused intentionally on fun on the patio and unintentionally on sunburns on my shoulders.
This got me to thinking also a scary thought after a long week at work, how can I make sure that the weather of summer does not lure me away from my writing? If you want to be a writer it’s simple you have to write. For me the best thing to do is to set some summer goals. That and maybe find a new patio where I can not only enjoy the sun but bring my laptop.
My Summer Goals-
1. Edit my two novels.
2. Finish a very, very rough draft of my memoir.
3. Expand my Blog.
4. Read 25 completely new books.
5. Still enjoy some fun in the Sun 😉
What are your goals?
