I have decided... Spring Break is my favorite.
It is the prelude to Summer's song... a beautiful sampling of notes that lure me in and capture my heart. The melody is bright and the sunshine that I crave singes my skin, but the harmony swings in below... a cool sweet breeze that blends with the heat of the sun and has me nearly swooning with glee.
The measures are too brief to hold onto, calling my soul to soak up the right now... so I say yes instead of maybe. We plant. We build castles. We tease and laugh and live. After days pass on without names, the weekend sneaks upon us, marking time... forcing me to know that there are only three more days. But three more days? I choose to see the beautiful possibilities, instead of the waning notes. And with my pencil, I scribble a fermata over the weekend and whisper to the conductor... hold it out for as many beats as you like.
