now that it’s practically summer, you may see me lathering on the sunscreen, lounging on a beach chair and watching the sun rise and fall, just like i am doing in the image above, sketched from a photograph taken about 20 years ago. i’m not much for suntanning — i’ve been blessed with brown filipino skin — but i do love a good lounge. i just like sitting.
activities that go well with sitting include, but are not limited to, drinking frothy beverages with or without paper umbrellas , reading a good novel or short story collection, scribbling in notebooks, pretending not to gawk at the cute shirtless boys who saunter by and taking leaning-back-with-head-tilted-sideways naps.
this is why my search continues for the perfect porch set, so that i can spend my evenings after work and lazy saturday mornings lounging.
