Don’t look back…

 

Don’t look back…

When the clock not only

winds down but runs backwards

is where I meet you again

for the first time.

Getting off the bus

seeking a hazelnut coffee

the instant recognition of our thousand lives

together.

All for the price of a silver figurine on a chain.

My friend made me listen to the song you wrote.

“It’s all about you,” she said, but I chose not to listen.

I should have believed.

In fate.

In our midnight time at the cottage.

In dreams that were real.

Yet, old age grants me a second chance.

My memories come back,

bigger and brighter.

This time, I take your hand,

walk down the beach with you,

and never look back.

Summer Blues, Introversion, and Stout Beer (not necessarily in that order!)

 

Just can’t shake this summer lassitude. Wish there was a beach nearby. Been dreaming about visiting a friend in Hawaii. And, still having a bunch of other really vivid dreams. Ho hum.

This week, in addition to laziness and despite my social ineptness, I’ve kinda been wanting a friend, or a sidekick. I’m sure it will pass, and I’ll be back to my usual introverted, loner self soon enough–no worries! *laugh*

I’m not much of a drinker (I prefer milkshakes–sorry, cows  :-(–or a nice cup of tea), but I do love a good stout/dark beer from time to time.

Disclaimer: The Chaos Fairy not remotely a beer expert at all. *laugh*

I have so many fond memories of pubs in England, Scotland, and Ireland that I associate stout with my travels overseas. Also, I’m not really a fan of IPAs, ales–they’re just too sweet or something, or just not rich enough?–(like I said, I’m not really a beer connoisseur!)

I love Guinness draught, of course, but haven’t tried the Guinness Extra Stout, surprisingly.

I looked and looked but couldn’t find any gluten-free stouts (of course!).

Any recommendations, in general, for stouts and other dark beers?

I love this one. Samuel Smith Imperial Stout

A list of “Best Imperial Stouts.”

For a well-rounded breakfast.

Whew. Time for a lazy summer nap (if only!).

‘Every Day is like Sunday’

A lackluster week for writing/inspiration…maybe a visit to The Writer’s Path will help.

But, it is summertime, after all– (Hello, laziness :p)

I so miss the ocean out here in the high desert.

Or, I’m just in need of some summer adventuring. National Geographic also has some neat summer adventures if you’re in the U.S.

Gelato in Italy might be the best place to kick the summertime blues…

…or other travel ideas if you’re the romantic type.

Can’t afford to leave home? Read a book. Or ten.

Have a conscience? Try a volunteer vacation.

Okay, I’m off to be lazy elsewhere.

Got other ideas to help fend off summer ennui? Post up below!

Have a fantastic summer!
