Recently, I’ve been trying to focus on improving my writing and dedication for it. I am taking a writing class that’s been super helpful for getting my daily habit of writing back on track. And this is one of the prompts that that class inspired me to do. Be sure to check the course out, if you are looking for something to get you into the daily practice of writing again.
In the Summer, we’d go on family trips where we’d drive longer distances. I still remember the trips where I’d be in the back seat of the car with my brother and sister. It was always a big discussion about who would be stuck in the middle seat and my sister usually lost that battle and got that seat. Why it was a big discussion was because if we got tired at least you could lay your head against the window to sleep. But if, my sister got tired, I’d let her lay her head on my shoulder. The road trips were fun.
Most of those road trips were camping trips or trips to the lake. In rural Minnesota lake culture is a big thing in the Summer. And what better way to spend a lazy Summer day, than at the beach with sand between your toes and wind blown lake hair?
