Spring 2019: Atmosphere Edition
The hum of fluorescent lights in your second home. The thrum of the AC in the vents. Or the breeze in the leaves of the trees around you. The weightlessness of the snow in the white mountains. The lightness of the clouds in the sky. The moment time stops after the slam of a bedroom door. The unfamiliarity of a stranger’s bedroom. The tingle of a nicotine high. The preemptive hit to your pride before your face hits the pavement. The red of a sunset that reminds you of home. The heat radiating from your forehead. The thump of the rhythmic bass that shakes your whole being. The contrasting clarity of mind after a breakup.
You’re the type of person for whom the atmosphere vibrates.
Summer 2019: Summer Daze Edition
The sun is making a long, grand exit, lighting up the atmosphere in pink, orange, red fires. You can feel the sweat on your skin sticking to the concrete below you. The air feels heavy, lingering in the air, dispelled by only a slight, warm breeze that blows every few moments. You breathe it in as it rushes by. From the distance you can hear a booming, constant and arbitrary, from all directions around you. It sounds like the world has gone to war, like there will only be endless destruction tomorrow morning—and maybe there will be. There will be burn marks on the sidewalk and profanities written in chalk on driveways. But today is a joyous day for everyone to partake in. You look up to the sky and see it explode, stars that are almost close enough to touch, smoke billowing away into our already tattered atmosphere. Fireworks glimmer in the heat, light bursting for a moment and then dissipating, as if it never existed. This is summer daze.
