To be nowhere
But in the moment.
Is exactly where you need to be.
There’s not much I don’t like about July in North Dakota. It’s like 1,000 degrees out today, and I’m still gonna say it.
Because there’s a breeze. There’s always a breeze.
If I could hold on to this month for another I would. I would take the horseflies if it meant another thirty days of thundershowers in the evening…
Wild sunflowers in the road ditches…
Haybales lined up nice and neat in the fields…
Chasing cattle in the cool draws…
and windows open at night.
I’d take the pissed off squirrel chattering in the tree by my head if it meant I could sleep with the cool breeze tickling the curtains for another few days.
It’s kind of a funny way to wake up.
Kind of like I’m sleeping in a tree house.
Which is a pretty perfect place to be in July.
