If I Could Only Keep Up With My Brain

If I Could Only Keep Up With My Brain

So, here it is, late February 2010. I definitely have sand-on-the-brain issues. Deep  into daydreams about being anywhere not-Chicago. Don’t get me wrong here; I do enjoy the seasons. But, like many fellow Chicagoans, once the holidays are over and after a snowfall or two in January we’re pretty much done with it. There  is one in every crowd who “can’t get enough of the ‘splendor of winter’. I hope they have holes in their boots while walking through slush.                               

I digress. At this time of year – for me, as we have established – I start to think heavily about what warmer climate I’d like to be in. Last year by this time I had tickets purchased for a California/Hawaii trip.  This year; nada. Nothing. So, I am clinging to memories of 2009’s trips like a toddler clings to her blankie.
Which brings me to this latest post. Sadly, only entry number two to my blog. That’s where I can’t keep up with my brain.  I have thoughts… often in 140 characters or less, thanks to Twitter. And I compose brief stories… in my head.  Since blogging is a new foray for me, I need to figure out a couple more things.  The possibility is there, and I know there are thoughts, stories and ideas to share.  So, I am going to get up off this mental chaise lounge and wade right into that water… Not dive, mind you – I am not a swimmer… but, a good solid wade should have me up and posting in no time!…. unless that beach waiter comes around.

🌴 An Island dreamer with a passion for palm trees and Caribbean turquoise water. Few things speak to my soul like having my feet in the sand on the coast of somewhere amazing with salty wind blowing through my hair. 🌴 🌴 Sandonthebrain is my way to hold that feeling all the rest of the days when I am not on an island. My collection of sand and affinity for rum, and island flavors helps to take me back...until the next trip. 🌴
