Song ideas can hit anywhere. This one hit on a surfboard.
Time stands still at times when you are in the water. When you have a chance to stop and look around sometimes you realize you have nothing but time. Time also moves slowly when you have the summers off - as both members of Dos Bros do being teachers. Tuesday? Saturday? They feel the same. It might be the middle of a long work week for most but to a teacher who has begun their summer break, every day feels like a weekend. As the song states:
Nothing on my plate, feeling great, just staring at the sea
Relaxation, vacation, friends and family
It’s been a long, long time since I had such time
No stress, decompress, nothing on my mind
It's a time to recharge the batteries, to reconnect with family and friends. Nothing gets in the way and the rewards of a difficult job pay off with the ultimate gift: freedom.
To all the hard-working teachers out there..."Weekend" is for you.
