DAY 590

in {and out} Week 25: Summer

Well, summer is here, so writing a post about it shouldn't be difficult. But summer is a hot season and lately this seems to drain all my creativity.

All I can do is thinking about when the weather will change. But amidst these negative thoughts (to be honest, the heat weave we are going through doesn't help) I see tiny glimpses of positivity, mainly related to how much I used to love summer.

As a girl, this was my favorite season and the time by the sea is (always will be) among my happiest memories. And also, the careless and relaxed days, the beach, the long afternoons that we were reading and chatting, the dip along with my mother when the sun was almost setting, the evening ice creams  and walks, the starry nights, the murmur of the waves, the moments of peace before going to bed... talking quietly in the terrace.

Thinking of all this makes me smile and makes me think how lucky I was regarding this issue. I lived in an isle, so those who didn't own a house by the sea could enjoy it anyway by going to spend the day there, but my mother decided that she would rent an apartment close to one of the best beaches of the isle in order to make it easier and it was simply fantastic. Sea was truly therapeutic to me along those years (still is), it always managed to heal all the things that could be painful: the disagreements or disappointments, the doubts about myself...  I only had to see its blue vastness and I felt relieved, liberated... and so happy.

I long for having a summer holidays like those I lived again. But I guess that they depended not only on opportunities or circumstances... they were also a state of mind.

And even so, how I would love to live one of those old days all over again at least one more time!.

Just one more time.

This entry is part of a project I am developing with my friend Montse Gallardo. We'll share a photo every week during 2015. Her photos will be always taken outside and my photos will be indoor shots only. We have created a Facebook page: In and Out. 52 weeks where you can see all the photos of the project.

It sounds like a truly wonderful state of mind to be.
