i needed a little reminder of sunshine and heat today.
i want to be the sort of person who can make peace with the crappy weather in england lately. i’m trying. but i’m failing miserably … i’ve become that person who incessantly rants about the weather to anyone who will listen – in elevators, in emails, in the pub with friends. (i must be a joy to be around.) i apologize … but i am LOSING MY MIND.
i love the heat & humidity of an east coast summer. i like the way it forces you to change your routine, to seek out cold drinks and places to go swimming. i love that feeling on a sunday night in july, as you head back to the city after escaping for a weekend at the beach. a bit of a sunburn. living in t-shirts and shorts. porch-sitting, bug spray, BBQs outside, cold beers, iced coffee in the morning. falling asleep with the fan blowing directly at you.
summer is a sacred time for me, i’m realizing. without seeing/feeling/experiencing the things that i’m used to at this time of year, i’m sort of lost. homesick for summer.
