A dip in the ocean is [almost always] an attitude changer.
Playing wits and wagers with the whole crew in the sunshine.
Watching the hummingbirds stop to watch us watching them.
Esquites and watermelon at the beach.
White sheets, window fan, scent trails of fading catmint.
Adventuring to a craggy seaside walk. Shortening our plans when legs get tired. Managing expectations.
Dahlias, sunflowers, lavender.

The airing of the grievances.
Last two weeks of summer countdown. Wow that went so fast.
Seeing and hearing about the moms and dads dropping off kids at college. Knowing that in one short year, we will be doing that too.
Nurturing roots & wings. Wondering if we are doing it right. Still.
Re-reading Stephen King books that I have forgotten, due to my aging brain.
Resisting therapy and EMDR right now. Feeling like I have done so much work already. Tired of delving deep into the past.
Instead I am ready for now. Do I still have to do the work? I am tired of trying to heal.
