Summer in the City

All I can think about on a day like today (a hot & sunny summer afternoon) is kicking back somewhere, on a hammock, reading a good book, listening to the ocean, drinking a pina colada. The ocean there for you when you're ready to cool off. The rustle of the palm trees lulling you to sleep. Feeling at peace, relaxed, calm.

Instead, I am in an overly air conditioned office, in the middle of downtown Montreal, drinking a glass of water, reading through expense charges. Feeling stressed, uptight, anxious.

The two don't really compare.

Amen sister. And now here's something to take your mind of that...
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
This is planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
This calling planet earth
Bop bop bop bop bop bop bop bop
You're looking at planet earth

It's been in my head all day.
So there.

Oh Stef, you really set the scene nicely. I can imagine swinging away in a hammock on a beach, the trade winds whipping through my hair, the smell of coconut suntan lotion in the air, that piƱa colada an arm's length away......sigh.......
