Suddenly, the summer has started, but I don’t remember having a spring. It was a cool, rainy season, flowers are now behind their blooming schedule. Today is bright and beautiful, the leading edge of a holiday weekend, it should be happy, happy, joy, joy. Instead, I’m down in the dumps, physically and emotionally. We have no real plans for the weekend, or the summer – no entertainments, trips, or Things To Do. And when this happens, we both end up feeling vaguely dissatisfied on Sunday afternoon, as though we’ve lost an opportunity, wasted time (and perhaps even the weekend) doing nothing.
