A beautiful day today – mid 80’s – clear blue sky – a slight breeze. It’s beautiful to sit outside for a change.
There are so many things to do there. If the house feels that it’s suffocating you, you can go for a walk, visit a church, walk on the boardwalk, sit at a café for hours and nurse an iced coffee. Go to the beach, spend the day in the water, lie under the hot, scorching sun, or under a beach umbrella. Watch the jet skis, leisure boats and fishing boats come and go. Watch the young children play in the water, running in and out, the fun they have splashing each other. Or lie down on the sand, close your eyes, and listen. Listen to the sounds around you. Even with your eyes closed you can recognize the sounds, you can hear the heat simmering, the birds fluttering their wings inside the tree branches, taking cover from the heat. Listen to the cicadas that never stop. Sometimes, their sound is so strong that you don’t hear anything else around you. You don’t see them; even with your eyes open you can’t, because they are hidden in the trees, the evergreens, the acacia trees, the willows, the walnut trees.
You’ll have endless days like this; endless days of a Greek summer...
