There are some days when the mind wanders and you find yourself preoccupied with a myriad of thoughts or locked in to a singular moment in time-today, was no exception.
This is a very busy time of year for Hallmark Cards as we are setting up all our Christmas displays store-to-store, suburb-to-suburb and this requires my full attention and complete concentration. But when you are handling greeting cards, especially during a holiday season, it’s easy to get lost in refelection about days gone by. With so many cards sharing images of times spent with loved-ones,talking about fun-filled adventures that create long lasting memories,I soon drifted off to my own special place….here’s a little glimpse into my daydream!
Children of summer dressed in denim and cheesecloth
Fishing rods & surfboards, the smell of copper toned-tans
Pitched-tents caravans & parks
Smokey b.b.q’s, beer ‘ mozzie-bites’ & calamine lotion
Combi’s & panel vans, music with long winding roads
Beach fires songs & tales
Summer romances, diaries & photo’s
Shells crabs seaweed & “blue bottles”
Sand-crusted skin & sand-filled toes
Long afternoons with late night “prawning”
Carnival rides, fairy-floss & hot-dogs
Boat lights across a still harbour
Say goodbye to a perfect holiday
