Outside, the clouds are dark. They're waiting for the rain to start walking. This is what happens when the weather gets too hot. All of the sunflowers begin to curl in their dry beds, and the sky eventually answers by giving them water.
I'm in need of some water too.
When I was 10 years old, I had a love affair with the sea. My family rented a motor home and traveled fifteen hours. We rode past our prairie town, far into the mountains, all the way to the seaside. When we arrived, I mined for seashells, kayaked beside pelicans and sang my first ever campfire song. I wore the sand on my feet like it was a bouquet, and each little grain made a flower. I've been putting my ears up to those collected seashells ever since.
It's been a long time coming, but at last my family is ocean bound. We're renting a motor home on Thursday to travel the same roads we took when I was 10. I have goosebumps just thinking of those waves.....
