Hello my friends,
I hope wherever you are, there is an endless stream of happiness. The kind of happiness that keeps your bones from growing old. Lately, I can't stop smiling. Either the heat is getting to my head or I've found plenty of reasons to be happy.
As I sit here, on top a pillow, with the shadow of Oak Trees on my shoulder, I can't help but think of my wonderful world. I have a double sized bed, popcorn in the pantry, and a lover who mutes the television while I write poems.
I even wake to the noise of dogs in the morning and the charms of Summer circling around the inflatable pool outside.
What more could I ask for?
Mornings with beaten egg whites floating in bowls, waiting to be poured into a dough that will grow in the oven. This is Summer. I can sleep through the morning, sunbathe through the afternoon, then let my eyes wander over video games while the moon kisses my windowsill.
The sun is here to heat the house & I am hopeful.
This my first Summer without textbooks, calculators, and calendars filled with school. I am free, I am free, I am free. I feel like I'm the 9 year old Amy again, the one who lived to play in giant dirt hills, never pulling thoughts of tomorrow, just living in the moment, with an ice cream cone in one hand and a sun hat in the other.
