Summer

Summer is road trips and picnic lunches
Music playing and windows wound down
Morning coffee in the early haze of a baking hot day
Bare feet in the sand
Light slanting across the floor
Ice cream dripping over little hands
Strawberries warm from the sun
Piles of wet towels and sand trailing down the passage
Good books and naptimes
Lazy days.
The colors blue and white and bleached wood
A pile of sea shells dropped into a bowl
Dreams of travels and bag-packing adventures
snoozing in a hammock in the backyard.

Here's hoping you are savoring the warmth (and looking forward to it if you're living way South of the Equator).
