MELLOW ME? NOT REALLY.

Have You Never Been Mellow?

Have I never been mellow? Do drugs count? No? How about books? I think the answer on this one is a solid no. Not really.

I’m not sure if reading makes me mellow, but it did and does take me out of myself. Which is probably as mellow as I get. The whole type A personality thing has a lock on me

Mellow isn’t for everyone. Not for me, for sure. Not for most of the people I love. We are wired tighter, permanently alert and waiting for something to happen. I’m not convinced mellow is something I want to be.

Whatever else, I doubt I’d be good at it.

  1. I was thinking I’m pretty mellow and chilled out because I don’t get all excited about stuff, but on second thoughts the word I’m looking for is probably “apathetic” 😦

  2. I was told that I needed to mellow out my entire life. Tried to smoke and saw little people under my oak tree, they never offered again.
    As a west coaster, I’ve learned to fake it.

  4. I guess growing up in California in the ’70s and ’80s gave me the mellow vibe. 🙂 And I never even indulged in pharmaceuticals. But the world needs different personalities. Right?

  5. Mellow is a little bit like when people say “Calm down.” I don’t like either.
    The lake photo though is peaceful and invites to a pause.
