Hic et Nuc (Here and Now)
Posted on August 20, 2013
Hic et Nuc, I’ve been drinking watermelon champagne cocktails, treating myself to vegan chocolate mousse, writing a new poem, Courting a Silhouette, and filling the final summer days out-and-about with my daughter, Marlie. We go on vacation in a week, a much needed reprieve from the daily work/pre-school schedule we’ve become accustomed to. Upon our return, she’ll start Kindergarten, which results in me in slowing down to really enjoy these moments we have. To be happy now, rather than stating I’ll be happy when _______. That blank will continually shape-shift as time ticks on never truly being fulfilled, the main reason being the belief that something is needed to fill to fulfill it. All I need, is hic et nuc. I hope you all are enjoying your final days of summer!
