A study break

08.01.07 | 2 Comments

For a time growing up, I wanted to be a weatherperson/hot air balloonist. To my young mind this was a perfectly logical career choice, like if I had to fill out a questionnaire about myself as an adult, that would be an available box to check, right there alongside hotel manager, nurse, computer scientist, and skilled laborer. I’m not sure why I thought there were people out there who went to work every day, got into a hot air balloon, and predicted the weather on the evening news, but I sure wanted that to be my job.

It’s of little consequence. I just found myself daydreaming with this afternoon’s storm. I love a gray sky with thunder and lightning. If my childhood’s vision for my perfect future could have been a reality, I would have smelled the rain during my morning hot air balloon ride today and suggested that my viewers carry an umbrella.
