Our optional prompt (which I followed) is.....
What does Summer smell or taste like to you? And why?
Your five minutes starts now!
Summer smells like… the mornings smell like optimism. Breezy, with a soft kiss and the reminder that every day is a new beginning.
Summer tastes like mint chip ice cream with chocolate sauce (instead of dinner when the thought of cooking makes your skin sweat… just the thought of it!)
Summer afternoons smell like gym shoes. Pungent. Tired. A bit discouraged.
Summer afternoons smell like my van’s airconditioning, magnolia trees and Samuel at the end of the day, sometimes French fries.
Summer evenings smell like rain, even when its try, perhaps by sure will or delusion or “Must I live through another dry over 100 degree day?”
Summer evenings taste like salty hot pretzels.
I am glad the SOCSunday lives on. I enjoy knowing we are still out here, writing, without thinking, just writing and bonding and reaching out, even though I think this is my lousiest SOC Sunday post ever. :-(
This was my 5 minute Stream of Consciousness Sunday post. It’s five minutes of your time and a brain dump. Want to try it? Here are the rules…
- Set a timer and write for 5 minutes.
- Write an intro to the post if you want but don’t edit the post. No proofreading or spellchecking. This is writing in the raw.
- Publish it somewhere. Anywhere. The back door to your blog if you want. But make it accessible.
- Add the Stream of Consciousness Sunday badge to your post. (get it over in my sidebar)
- Link up your post here.
- Visit your fellow bloggers and show some love.
