Grounded

This has been the hottest  summer since my childhood.  I have not had  central  air in the house. Do not have working AC in my car.
But, I believe I have acclimated  to the intense heat, and humidity.  I drink tons of green tea, and water.  Meals have been incredibly  basic . Not really doing much cooking, as it just increases the heat.
But , I am feeling very grounded this summer. My daughter, and her daughter, who is 17 Mos old, are  living with me.  And let me tell you. Having a grandaughter  at 60, has been a completely  new education for me.  She is a very busy little girl. And a very happy one. Curious  G ,as I  call her.She loves to be outside. And, she would prefer to be without shoes. It makes me think back to my own childhood.  I preferred  shoeless, myself.
There’s  something about being barefoot in the grass that wakes up senses I forgot about. Standing barefoot  on the ground. It is like a connection to the earth that you don’t  feel when you are wearing  shoes.   It just feels good. There is a real connection  to the earth that many of us have forgotten about. I highly recommend  you experience  it daily. There is an energy that is worth paying attention  to.  I imagine gardening is a very similar experience.  I imagine,  because  I stink at gardening. So ,it is a more frustrating energy to say the least.
    I have thought back to many of those  enjoyable childhood memories,  while playing  with  G. Laying in the grass, kneeling  in the dirt, playing in water buckets. Hanging with our two dogs. Watching G experience  the boundaries  of her own yard. Exploring every path,tree, bush, stick, rock, bug, and  firefly.
Being without  central air in the house has made me think of days , when I was a child. We didn’t  have AC in our home, or, in our schools.  We lived outside from sun up to  sundown. Mysteriously,  I don’t  remember  suffering in the heat. I had a small fan.in my bedroom. And we opened the windows at night, and listened to katydids, and crickets.
  I used to dream I could shrink small enough to fly through  the screen window , and could fly to any planet I wanted. I  would describe to my friends, and parents, in vivid detail,  what it was like. It was a wonderful feeling of escape,  I guess, now, when I look back. But I remember, it was a wonderful  feeling.  I could fly!  Anywhere!
The feeling of flying, and being grounded. Two happy memories from my life. That have nothing to do with the heat. Now that’s  escape!
