First Post/ Reawaken it with play...

This summer I have been dreaming of relaxation, fun, and whimsy.

Photobucket
Like curling up in this hammock, reading books all day long, with a glass of lemonade in hand.
I have a thing for lots and lots of pillows and
comfy blankets.

Photobucket
Or frolicking in pretty dresses, chasing bubbles,
kites, or balloons.
I like to feel like a kid sometimes, it brings
excitement and wonder into my life.

Photobucket
Maybe even picnicking in the grass, making flower
chains and pointing out images that the clouds form.

Photobucket
But there has been nothing as big as dreaming of
going to a far away land, escaping from the mundane life of living in the same city forever.
I wish to travel, everywhere. To see places big and small, popular or quaint, to learn from different
cultures, and experience things never though of
before.

But nevertheless, this summer has been full of
stressful thoughts, and looming deadlines.
Empty pockets, and wishful thinking.
So I'm going to take a deep breath, and let it go.

I have a new motto to live by:

Play |plā|verb1 [ intrans. ] engage in activity for enjoyment and recreation rather than a serious or practical purpose : the children were playing outside | her friends were playing with their dolls.[ trans. ] engage in (a game or activity) for enjoyment : I want to play Monopoly.amuse oneself by engaging in imaginative pretense : the boys were playing cops and robbers.

Yes, reawakening the possibility of a fun summer with play sounds like a good idea indeed.
And actually, playing cops and robbers sounds like a good way to start =)
