Oh the Places We Will Go

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do
With your one wild and precious life?”

~Mary Oliver, The Summer Day
A warm sunny morning play date scheduled at a woodsy park detours into a wonderful windswept beach excursion…  sandy beach trip leads to delicious ice cream cones, ice cream near toy store reminds us to pick up gifts for four upcoming birthdays. Toy store next to consignment shop results in fabulous new (used) coffee table for our family room.

On a different chilly, rainy morning we meet friends at a farm park but quickly decide it is too stormy so we swing over to a nearby art fair, so-called fair is a flop but lunch out with friends is delightful… sun breaks through the clouds and we end up spending a sunny afternoon with friends at another park.

Ah, summertime. Letting our days unfold, going with the flow, playing it by ear, and generally enjoying our lack of rigid scheduling. Our moods guide us, the weather encourages one direction or another and we end up wherever we end up...
