So this weekend I was at Pembroke Mall for the Sing Like John Mayer Contest...and in case you have ever wondered...this is what my head looks like in a display box. I got goofy and a good time was had by all; some great singers showed up!
Then, with the kids being out of town for a few days (ten to be exact), I like to take some time to go over the past year and 'take out the trash'...meaning...I lose those things which are not working and look to bring in things that ARE working.
...so I went flying an RC Airplane that I bought. It was good to do something I used to obsess about in such a passive manner...
I had one of my epiphanies while I was flying.
The next morning...the sun was back in full force as the temp neared 91 degrees on the back porch at ten minutes to 11am. I know some do not like the heat...but I do...I love summer; especially here in Virginia....
As I sat there enjoying the heat, I wrote this on my Iphone:
"Ten till 11 in the shade. For ten years this place has been my home; Virginia. Every year I love her more. Summer is when she comes alive for me and every year her heat reminds me what it feels like to be young...my lady Virginia, I love everything about you...but summer is your best outfit and you wear it without compare." --C.
