"You can complain because roses have thorns, or you can rejoice because thorns have roses." -- Ziggy
As I stood there under the heat of the blistering sun waiting for my ride, I couldn't help but curse summer. With sweat pouring down my back, the heat of the road bouncing up to my skin, my eyes hurting from the glare shining off from dozens of vehicles wheezing by past me -- what else could I be thinking of?!
Then I remembered ---- I had a fan in my tote bad, had my shades too, and my hankie scented with floral drops of cologne that I love. So I took them out... wore my shades and the glare bothered me no more. Fanned myself and the heat became bearable. Wiped off my sweat and which in effect left its scent behind glued to my skin... felt good. And then out of nowhere a gust of wind blew, so refreshing and most welcome. And like magic -- put back the smile on my face.
Oh summer can't be too bad ... not with a fan, sunglasses, hankie, and Mr. Wind.
