it’s that time of year again where i do my annual post about summer psyching. this has mostly do with all the imagery i have seen on instagram and twitter and in my blog feed from people who live in, or are currently holidaying in, the northern hemisphere. i know you guys have been experiencing some heat waves – even though the news of the heat wave in London made all of us south africans smile, of course. “temperatures as high as 32c!”
i can’t say that i miss summer, at this point. truth is that we have had a pretty mild winter so far. some days i walk around my neighbourhood and it’s warm enough that people are donning shorts and tee-shirts. that’s just the way it is here, and always will be. i’m grateful for that. what i do miss is that feeling that summer brings – of being on perpetual holiday (even when you’re not). you can get home after work and there’s enough daylight left to go sit on the beach and have a sundowner with your friends, or jump in the pool, or have a gin & tonic on your patio… enjoy the next few months – it’ll be our turn soon.
