You emit a vibe anomalous to yourself; a kind of invincibility experienced only within your thirty-one days. I am trying with all the might I can muster to encompass it within me and hope that maybe some will store for when your cooler cousins come along. But there are a few odds and ends that suggest this mood that I wish I could secure in a mason jar. Things like Ben & Jerry’s Phish Food ice cream and wildflowers and strawberry shortcake. ‘Painting Roses‘ by Dresses. Sunglasses. The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd and a documentary titled Tiny. Emily Diana Ruth’s Letters to July project. Saltwater sandals and lemonade and the smell of bonfires. S’mores. Driving with all the windows down, my hair catching in the wind. Walks and bicycle rides and hikes. Thanks for all the good vibes, July.
