Listen up, World – It’s That Time Again

March 30, 2014

It’s that time again.


It’s time for shorts and sandals.

Salads on the back patio.

The smell of a grill.

A crisp, cold white.

Gin and tonics.

Seafood right out of the gulf.


Planting roses.

Azaleas blooming.

A good sunscreen and self-tanner.


Everything outdoors you can possibly imagine.

Day dreaming.

The beach for the best shrimp bun on the planet.

Bare feet.

New hair.

A bright lip.

Little girls in twirly, floral dresses.

Big girls in flirty dresses.

Big boys in seersucker and plaid.

Smiling with abandon.

Long exhales.

Cartwheels and confetti egg wars in the backyard.

It’s windows down, hair up, arm out the window, and songs that remind you of that other life.

It’s time to start again – and I can’t wait.

    Gonzalo… Semita es una persona cuya lengua materna es de origen semita, o sea, originaria de medio oriente, como el hebreo y el arameo. Seguro habrás escuchado el término &#&ea0;2ntis2mita8#8221; y pensaste: “¡Claro!, genta que no soporta comer ese tipo de pan!”Por cierto, que el término semita se refiere sólo a la lengua materna de las personas, no a su origen racial.Saludos
