I must be having summertime blues because for the past week or so I’ve felt out-of-sorts with myself and the rest of the world. It might be the pending heat and her inability to make outdoor activities possible for the next three months that’s got me wallowing in this “lost at sea” mood.
Do you ever feel you are the on the outside looking in? I’ve always felt that way, but it’s never been about wishing I was living another person’s life, it’s more about never feeling like I truly fit in with the life I have. That hardly even makes sense to me, but somehow my brain has worked it out and I’ve managed to feel mostly content and happy in spite of it.
Moods are like water, splashing all over the place on windy days and still as glass on calm days, so I will continue to drift through the hot blazing sea of summer and patiently look forward to docking my little battered boat somewhere in October. In the meantime I will keep my life vest within reach and wear plenty of sunscreen.
