A Hot Summer Day
On this hot summer day...
The sun is shining, the sky is clear, temperatures are already beginning to rise
I step outside into the glaring, luminous sun that heats up my skin just perfectly
I lay out on a picnic blanket, gasping in the dazzling sunlight, enjoying the summer sun before it gets too hot to enjoy
On this hot summer day...
As the afternoon comes around, the heat is now torrid
I can barely stand to be outside before my mouth begins quenching for thirst and the uncomfortable feeling of sweat slowly starts to run down my back
On this hot summer day...
I take a bike ride into down town to get some lemonade in order to satisfy my severe craving hoping to feel a cool breeze while riding through the radiant heat of this searing sunlight, beaming off my cheeks, making them rose red
On this hot summer day...
As the sun begins to set, the brilliant, lustrous pink, red and orange colors cover the sky and the heat finally begins to diminish
I can now enjoy the end of this hot summer day with a book in hand and my feet swinging freely, while they hang over the wooden swing that is tied to the tall oak tree the ending of a scorching, yet glamorous, summer day, is only the beginning of the next hot summer day...

    Every time I sit down on a hot summer day, and look up into the sky, and see the sun shining down, I think of Buster Poindexter's song, "Hot hot hot". And every time I think of this song, I think of the earliest memories I have from my childhood, which are listening, singing and dancing to this old time favorite song. It has been twenty years already but I can still remember the small three bedroom house we used to have back then. My parents were a young married couple and I was the only child at…

    Creative Writing: A Day at the Park It was a day I was subconsciously waiting my whole life for, but I didn't realize it until it was happening. The day was August 8, 1996, just 25 days before my son's first birthday. The Texas Rangers, my favorite baseball team, were in town to play the K.C. Royals. I had always dreamed of one day, taking my son to his first Rangers game. A father taking his son to a baseball game is just the American thing to do, and there I was, taking my son "out to the…

    Summer was dead, but autumn had not yet been born when the ibis came to the bleeding tree. It's strange that all this is so clear to me, now that time has had its way. But sometimes (like right now) I sit in the cool green parlor, and I remember Doodle. Doodle was about the craziest brother a boy ever had. Doodle was born when I was seven and was, from the start, a disappointment. He seemed all head, with a tiny body that was red and shriveled like an old man's. Everybody thought he was going to…

    The thirty-first of August was a day Dipper both loved and hated. It meant he had survived another year without Bill Cypher rearing his triangular head but, that he was a year closer to that eventuality. On one particularly paranoid night, he had ground up moonstone and unicorn hair into a magical ink and snuck out to a shady tattoo parlour with a fake id and two years worth of saved allowance. So here he was on his sixteenth birthday trying to figure out how to hide the wards he had etched into…

    Another day has passed, another sunrise witnessed. Laney wakes up on one of the cold, hard benches of Central Park. She looks around to see the same scene as she always does, the fountain, the first group of tourists, and the same trees that she has seen everyday since her parents died. She sits up and a shiver trickles up her spine. Laney looks down at her shoes, filled with holes, her pants, ripped and torn, and her hands, numb and frozen. A couple walks by and glances over at Laney, they start…
