I am a fan of the scorched earth concept. Whenever I sense the walls getting too close, and by walls that means people, it is time to burn it all down. Some would consider it personal sabotage but that implies a certain level of unconscious decision making where scorching the path and bridge to yourself is more of a hyper-aware decision. I get edgy when the masses, including strangers/neighbors/former friends, seem to encroach on the 2011 version of myself. I am not sure where or when they sense the invitation to do so as I am not exactly Mr. Good Vibe but I again I fault the lack of being able to decipher civility vs. friendliness as the root evil.
I am quite pleased with the early Fall rain we have been getting and could get used to this for a few more weeks. Give me 1 nice day per week or 2 hours of low rain/wind in the late afternoon with my kids and I am set. Good bye my nemesis, summer, for now at least.
