As I sit at the monitor visions come to me of other times and places. It is as if the combination of winter and routinised work (which I am now starting to get the hang of hence it becoming routine) serves to summon snatches of memory of more sunny experiences. And it is different from the following experience...
From 9-to-5 I have to spend my time at work
My job is very boring I'm an office clerk
The only thing that helps me pass the time away
Is knowing I'll be back in Echo Beach some day
In the Martha And The Muffins song I think the singer is describing a deliberate practice. In my case the images just come to me at random. It may be some classic Summer memory of spending days in a beach house with friends. It may be nothing more exciting than walking along some suburban street in better conditions. But it seems to happen particularly at this time of year. Is it a lack of sensory stimulation that my brain is seeking to compensate for I wonder.
We have had some nice days lately. But I am still pining for warmer conditions and more sunshine. Bring on Spring and then Summer I say.
