I'm poolside in Houston. . .
It's 9:00 tonight.
And we're lounging around on pool floaties and enjoying this gorgeous night. The home overlooks Memorial Park in Houston. A tropical storm is about to hit here in a few days. Dolly is her name. It's all over the news. But now it is calm. I have a few mosquitoes bitting at my ankles.
I am on vacation.
My camera battery is dead so I'm taking this picture off a wonderful mac pro laptop with the built-in camera.
I really love vacations. I feel so creative. I am working on a line of fabric... and I've been somewhat stumped during my regular business hours. But now that I'm on vacation, I feel nothing but creativity. I keep drawing them out with my brand new felt pen and sketchbook. I have unlimited ideas!!
I have my feet making waves in the pool and I'm watching my shadow from the sun behind me and my mind is free. I dreamed I was in the singing group The BeeGees this morning just before I woke up. And Barry's mic was off but he didn't know. I looked around the audience worried but the audience seemed to be enjoying him regardless... and I woke up relieved and smiling.
I was the female singer of the group.
That's why I love vacations. I can dream. And I dream of anything and everything.
When you're on vacation, you have all the time in the world... to dream. And I do.
I fly out of Houston tomorrow night and will stay in Dallas until early Saturday morning. I probably won't be back until I return.
