It's a three blog day!!! Can you recall the last time that happened? Because I can't. It's enough to make me cry. Because I haven't had an inspiring thought in so long - something inspiring enough to make me come back here a second and a third time. But this past week, I keep having little lines show up and stand beneath the window of my mind, shouting their playful refrains from somewhere sunny and cool and crisp. I feel like writing. I feel like flirting. I feel like leaving work and going home and playing tennis with my husband. Baking a pie.
Three weeks away from this place has had a good affect on me.
I feel like heading to the ocean. I understand why in years past, society spent time 'by the sea' when ailed. To be away - outside - apart. These past two weeks, we spent so much time in a car, driving. You begin to feel tired and cramped from sitting. Constrained. But after it is all said and done - I feel I've drunk half of the hills of Washington. I drained a drop from the Boise river. And I rolled up the edge of Oregon, cut off a corner no one would notice, and brought it home in my sack.
