Nostalgia.. we all have them

a dash of humor,
a pinch of reality.

Summer months for many,many years meant being on the road,
travelling between Orillia and Christie Lake. Sometimes we hit
the road Friday night so when we wake up Saturday morning,
we'd be at the lake. Or we'd be up at crack of dawn Saturday
and drive off to the lake.
It did not matter where Saturday morning finds us. To this day,
a steaming, hot and strong coffee is the first order of the day.
This morning is a bit chilly after yesterday's rains. Some cottagers
are here, but all is quiet-sshh. We'd be sitting in the living room
listening to the waves beating against the shore and some birds
chirping, we'd just be soaking up the view of the lake, the tranquility
Here at the lake, we are not mindful of Time- it feels like
Saturday morning is forever. Enjoy your Saturday mornings-
whatever your plans are.
Rainy days always stir nostalgia in me. Happily, they are pleasant
memories of people and days gone by...In our college days, my
sister Sylvia and I loved the typhoons,especially the rain that come
with it. Classes are suspended and we are not in a rush to go home.
Instead, we tuck our books away safely, usually leave it with a friend
who lives close by the university. With our umbrellas and no burden
of books to carry, we merrily walk the boulevard as traffic slows down.
Headed for home, slowly and enjoying wading through the ankle deep
water of the city streets, mindless of the winds that threaten to blow
away our umbrellas. It was indeed a very exhilarating walk in the rain
and flooded streets amids giggles as we were getting soaked.
Those were carefree days!
