May is coming. It's only a day away! And May is a good month for daydreaming.
You know, where you're awake, and your eyes are likely open but your brain has taken you on a
trip to either some far off, exotic land, maybe the coast of Oregon even, and you're standing overlooking the rocky coast, or it has positioned you smack-dab in the middle of some radically unique situation, such as, well, you are the Sultan of Swing.
Maybe, you're standing on top of a mountain looking down at the river imagining yourself on a raft. Or maybe you're in a raft wondering how you'll get to the top of the mountain. The messiness of early spring rains mixed with winds and the last few chilly winter days are leaving us.
May is spring at its finest. May knows summer is coming, and the days are getting longer, and the birds are singing louder and the traffic is nearly non-stop with folks hurrying from work to school to home to work and back again. May is busy. Our minds need our brains to take a break. Hence the need for May-dreaming.
Something has to slow us down and ground us and keep us present.
