picnic

It’s already August 13th and I have yet to have a proper picnic. Growing up it was something we did a lot. My aunt had a no leftovers rule. She would stop the car at the side of the road and pass out what was left rather than bring it home. She knew that it tastes different at home; the sad lettuce a reminder of just how fleeting our summer season is.

The deep end

divingboard

When I was a kid nothing was more fun than a diving board. Jumping into a pool or a lake, hitting the cold water, trying out fun moves. Maybe hitting the bottom maybe not. I would jump in and then get back out, trying over and over the brief flight and then the crash, making a big splash or not.
At midlife I look back at this joy with a smile and wonder when it will be my time to jump back into the deep end again.
