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.
