I have a new resolution; every time I see someone open an umbrella on a sunny day I will smile. These umbrellas have brought me so much frustration and anger in the past weeks, that it is now time to let go. Let go of this hostility and let some light in. Every time I fake a smile, perhaps a little true happiness will leak in, until finally the frustration will actually be rid from my life. Yes, that is what I shall do. Embrace the umbrella and this culture phenomena that I can only experience while living in this blessed country. Welcome, sunbrella, welcome.
PS beach was awesome today. Totally deserted, swam 10 laps, got some tan, and am back in time for happy hour. Asa Friday.
