Weather’s bad, wish we were there

     

Outside it’s cold, gray, and wet.
I’m not ready for gloomy weather.

I’d much rather be following my writing buddies,
Laurie and Lorraine,
across the sands of Oceanside Beach.
Beneath the wide-open Oregon sky,
wearing blue raincoats, all.

  1. Oh gosh. I was imagining the same thing today: a walk on the beach with my blue-coated buddies. Look at that beautiful blue sky, too! I’m not doing well with the impending drear…

    • Really? We’re experiencing mind-meld? It would be so nice to be there again and away from the drear. I’m quite nervous about the gloom and know I need to be extra proactive to protect my sanity. Look out, hoop!

      • I’m not sure I’d wish my mind on anyone right now, but yeah… I went for a walk before picking Catgirl up at school yesterday and I kept thinking beach…beach…beach. So it was very cool to see that beach — our beach — here on your blog. I’m thinking I might have to invest in one of those SAD lights this year.

      • I thought the same thing when I wrote “mind-meld.” Like maybe I shouldn’t be wishing that on Laurie. See, it IS mind-meld!
        I know what you mean about the SAD light but I’m going to try and get out every day. It was snowing/raining yesterday and I had the nicest walk and felt so much better. But the next few months will be a slog, for sure.

    • Fog is very cool. But for some reason I’m not with the program this year. I need more sunshine and colorful leaves showing their brilliance in that sunshine.
      Maybe we can get a petition going…

      • I walked in the snow/rain yesterday and had such fun looking at the colorful soggy leaves on the sidewalk. I usually enjoy the crunch underfoot but it was a cool seeing the leaves that way. Go figure!

  3. If it makes you feel better, the sky only looks like that in the morning. Usually by afternoon the winds have come in and the sky has clouded up. At least this time of year.
    April, who will be teaching in Oceanside next July!

    • Thanks for the reality check. We get lots of sunshine in CO but I’m feeling particularly twitchy this year when it gets cold and gray. Guess I just needed a few more days of sunny autumn.
      Lucky you on teaching in Oceanside next July. Is it the conference sponsored by that author guy? Can’t remember his name but he was there at the same time this year.
