Cantaloupe w/ Balsamic & Basil
Sometimes we all just need ease. Easssseeeeeeeeeeee.
Because there are the days when things become cluttered, there's too much going on. Life pulls on you from each end. You're Stretch Armstrong.
Your friends have you by your right wrist, your significant other is grasping your left calf. Do you have kids? Yup, they're bear hugging your entire right leg, it's starting to tingle. Work is leaning on the back of your neck while diet and exercise are pinching your fingertips. It's electrifying, in that deadening sort of way. But you're not dead! So you just get used to it and learn how to deal.
Gosh, I sound depressing. But that's not what I was going for! It's just that sometimes you get so caught up and your internal barometer just won't chill. Constant adjustments- unnecessarily, most often. Sometimes things just need to be simplified- stripped of their layers.
