Bring On The Heat, Austin!

It’s summer in Texas, so you make for the shade to find your favorite hammock, and let imagined breezes waft over you. Not yet cool, you close your eyes and dream of a cool, sweet sunrise . . .

Don't worry be happy
Be Happy by Jann Alexander ©2014

You’re getting some kind of vision now that involves beer and tequila, and you’re feeling uplifted. There’s a bouncy little song overlaying your mind—and yet you’re still hot. Despite its cheery chorus, you’re still not so happy . . .

Suddenly, you realize there’s a solution that will cool you off and make you happy. It involves a bar. So you abandon the shade for the nearest chilled Margarita with salt and a cerveza chaser.

You Can Never Leave by Jann Alexander ©2014

Ahhh, happiness. The Texas heat is on your back burner. You’ve found the thing you love most about summer, and you’re holding it in your hand. You kick back, relaxed and chilled out, and glance at the bar sign. Then a nagging little worry bead tries to work its way into existence:

You’ve checked into the Hotel California bar. Can you ever leave?

With or without a cerveza, you can take a cool, virtual trip to Austin, Texas HERE.

    1. Thanks, Tina, I’m sure you’ve got “muggy” to add to “heat” there in SC. What did you like about Austin? The first time I ever visited Austin was in May, and by the following August, I was living here! Despite the heat.


I'd love to hear what you think
