thoughts on a july morning,
It didn’t rain in Halifax for 3 weeks, and July was hotter than usual
And all of the people were sunned and more bronzed than usual
and they were more happy than their usual levels of happiness
and cats lazed around and meowed softly
and bikes cruised down pavements safely
and all was well
ok, maybe my cucumber plants are not fully well, but otherwise..
I just finished my first solo theatre-esque show. Monologue. All about love and dating and polyamory and too many thoughts from my over-thinky head.
It depleted and replenished me at the same time.
I got to yell on stage. I’ve never done that. I swore. My eyes watered.
For those of you who might want to see it/hear it/read it stay tuned. It’s too fresh right now to put back out there, I need to revisit it, fine tune, all of that.
But I will remount it, somewhere sometime soonish. Maybe I will tour it. Maybe I will record it. Maybe I will type it into a little booklet of some kind with cute pencil drawings alongside.
For now, I have to go on tour again. Just a mini tour, to the mid country where it will be hot as all get out and I’ll think, ‘where is the frigging ocean??!!?’
But I do get to spend a bit of time in Toronto, with friends and sexy people in my midst
and hot coffee in the hot sun.
This summer has been a wealth of swimming. Out here in Halifax the swimming is really good.
When people ask why I live here I say ‘for the swimming’
well, that is not the only reason, but it’s up there on the list. Definitely top 7.
Other things about this summer:
new-to-me joint pain
a tour across the prairies that was bliss mixed with canoes and ideas
love and falling for it, as usual
picnics with beauties on hills
frustration with social media, so more books
so leaving my phone at home
so putting my body in bodies of water
also trying to let it go
you know, be here now and all that clicheed stuff
also, sorting through the clichees to see what are the good ones
hope your summer is going swimmingly, indeed
bye for now
