Be warned:in this very rich environment where you can immerse yourself so completely, your emotions will become engaged -- and not everyone is cognizant of that. Among the many excellent features of SL, there is no auto-return on hearts, so be wary of where your's wanders...

Today’s writing prompt:

248. At the Park: Take some time to sit on a park bench and write about the sights, scenes, and senses and emotions you experience.


Sounds nice, huh? 


Let me explain why that doesn’t sound like a great idea at the moment.  Right now hereabouts it is over 95 F with a humidity level that goes well beyond “humid” and is best described as something more appropriate for the rainforest bordering the Amazon or Congo rivers.   Even at night the mercury is struggling to get below 80.  The heat index is soaring, the bugs are biting mercilessly, there is an air quality alert, and if you think I am going to go out there and SIT, you have another think coming.    This suggestion was clearly made by someone who thinks of September as the meteorological start to Fall and is convinced there is a crisp air about that makes you think of apple cider and turning leaves and long leisurely walks.




Yeah, I’m staying in the A/C
