The sun is shining down upon us and drying up the remnants of the rain.
The lawns and flowers have soaked their roots and seem very content
the blooms have not faded
they are smiling up at the sun.
I have picked up a new book from my summer read pile
I am amused by the first few chapters
Sophie Kinsella is taking me away
with her words.
I've toyed with the idea of writing a book
I was in the enriched English class at High School
I wrote poetry and was published in the School yearbook
My teachers encouraged me
and I blossomed
it has been years
and the niggling thought still has itself firmly lodged in the back of my mind.
Blogger, Jen Lancaster's book "Bitter is the New Black" has awakened that urge
...maybe I'll enroll in a creative writing class at college this fall?
I have been enjoying simple days
unfettered by bustle and demands
eating when hungry
sleeping when weary
keeping the small space tidy
from beaches near and far
combing the shores for their bounty
searching for treasure in any form
The laze of summer
days of rest
the time to think
to savour the bounty
Where do you find the peace and serenity to restore and rejuvenate?
Is it the Yoga studio, a cottage, a garden?
