post poolside syndrome

by jolevitan



on paper arriving home from my winter getaway in miami on the first day of spring seemed like i could escape the post vacation blues. unfortunately, the weather has not turned, not a lilac in sight, and snowflakes are still falling. hanging by the pool made me remember there was a life outside of 9pm bedtimes, crusty uggs, and salt stained everything. i still have my toasted skin to remind me of my recent escapades in a vitamin D rich world. one day after getting off that plane, i ask myself if i am in a worse boat having been teased for the past five days? i’m back to dreaming  of outdoor living through pictures.
