Boredom doesn't mean you're boring

The crickets pulse with rhythmic repetition. A daughter visits and leaves, rushing in and out with smiles and news, the schedule for high school appears in the mail and the air cools with the expectation of September in the offing. I am restless and craving something huge, complicated and requiring every ounce of my attention. Napping beckons and repels at the same time. I want to be moving forward- if possible like a shark.

It's important to resist having too many opinions about what really matters. Best to enjoy the lingering light of the afternoon, the branches moving in the breeze and savoring how pleasant feeling pleasant often seems after a problem is solved or a crisis is averted.

I'll go with the glass half full and leave it at that.
