Jellyfish Killers

February 19, 1999


Are you ready to feel the warmth of the sun caress your face as we stand with our feet planted in sandy water listening to nature’s symphony? I look to these days to come as some kind of reward to our current hardships. I miss our heart to heart talks, our debates, our secret obsessions, our affairs. I miss your smile, that knowing smile.

Every action I proceed to take is quickly criticized by someone somewhere. I prefer to stay away from the city for a while. Avoid the murmuring and chattering of crowded conversations piled much too high for these walls. I need to feel the sun on my back and inhale a breath of fresh air, but I need to feel it every day, not on somebody else’s time. So summer is on its way again but let us not forget the wonderful season of spring. I can’t wait for all the thunderstorms! Do you see what I mean? All of this will be missed for my eyes rarely see the light of day, and if they do they shall never witness sleep. I received my first raise today. Now I have a steady income of $7 an hour (laugh if need so). My dental insurance is about to kick in as well which makes me very happy. As soon as I pay off my car, get my teeth fixed, and put back a little more money, I swear to you I’m leaving!
