Summer Sloth

A  L  O  H  A !
" For every minute you are angry
 you lose sixty seconds of happiness."

Ralph Waldo Emerson 

is no brief candle 
to me. 
It is a sort of splendid torch 
which I have got a hold of 
for the moment, 
and I want to make it burn 
as brightly as possible 
before handing it 
onto future generations.”

 George Bernard Shaw

" Living is being born slowly. 

 It would be a little too easy

 if we could borrow 

ready-made souls. " 

Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,
 Flight to Arras, 1942

Aloha, Friends!
My brain
seems to have
gone fishing,
or on vacation.

Right now,
I'm enjoying a 
Summer Stupor
with a side of
Polynesian  Paralysis.

Sure hope You
are goofing off,
eating ice cream,
not going to school.

Isn't this just the most
healing time of the year?
 (Not valid in Southern Hemisphere;
Sorry Perth!)

Leave your complacent yawn in comments!

                              Fondly, cloudia

Summer is wonderful, especially now that we're getting some rain. Enjoy.

I used to actually enjoy what I called recreational anger. It was energizing. No more. I'm too old for that now.

No - winter is my healing time of the year, so it does apply (for me) in the Southern Hemisphere too.
Revel in your days...

There are worse things for a brain to do than go fishing. ;)

Great quotes, Cloudia!
Thanks for your comments on the Belgian King Filip. He is not our King. Our king is Willem Alexander who recently succeeded his mother Queen Beatrix. Anyway there are now two young kings in Europe and 5 old monarchs.

I love this! It's so very true. I guess I'm not too complacent right now because we are rushing to finish our album, work on the house remodeling, clean the darn house, etc.
