Yes, that's right. I am having a horrendous longing to be on my beloved island, Kauai.
The longing starts to rear it's painful head, around this time of year; the "vacation" season or mid-summer. Watching others post their vacation pictures or update their blogs of wonderful locations or joyful respites from the daily grind of life, makes me pine even more for a summer playtime.
To combat these summer/vacation blues, I start to count the days until I too can relax and play. Once the countdown starts, I reminisce of past visits to the lovely Garden Island.
I try to remember the smell of the ocean, the plumerias, a proper Mai Tai, suntan lotion and sun rising over the Pacific Ocean.
You ask, "Why don't you plan a vacation in the summer"?
Habit, I think.
