you should definitely take a moment to lay in the moonlight of your friends' midnight lawn after hugging them goodbye in the indian summer darkness. they will be inside in the lamplight and warm, but it is better outside on the cool damp grass listening to the trees and stars.
try not to think about how embarrassing it could be for one second if they walked out and found you.
just concentrate on the fact that it's still summer and warm and cool and grassy and starry and reminds you of being 16
and wearing long hippy skirts and taking acid on the back lawn.
and feeling so excited about being a part of the wondrous world revealing itself to you.
