Annnd…. BANG! it’s summer. Just like that.
Usually I try and make a list of goals at the start of each season, but this time I don’t think I’m going to confine my goals to bullets. Instead, I’m just going to coast. I feel like something needs to change for me this summer, but I don’t know what it is. I must mellow out. I need to relax and let the summer do its thing.
Perhaps I’ll take monday July third off form work. I’ll buy 4 dozen lemons, a bag of ice, and a pound of sugar and make frosty lemonades in glass mugs on the beaches of cape cod. Maybe I’ll get a haircut. I’ll flirt with the wind and my kite.
I should sing more when I mow the lawn. and whistle. I might want to start running again, but not for strength or endurance. Just to sweat. I’ll consider buying things like new pants and hot shirts, but i won’t because I’m too cheap. I’ll cook more for myself and treat myself to healthy dishes overflowing with vegetables. I don’t want junk food, chocolate, or chicken wings. I want purity and simplicity. A clean desktop and an uncomfortable chair. I want to have way too much nature. I want to completely resist the temptation to itch my bugbites. I want to lose at darts and not care. I never want to procrastinate when going to bed, and I’m tired of being sick.
Ryan Schenk said to me the other day “this is what I imagine Mike D wakes up to every day”
And while that’s not quite true, I think that’s what I want for summer 2006; sickeningly happy mornings.
