The Slow Down



Summer is flying.  I want it to slow down.  I begin teaching summer school next Monday, and suddenly I am realizing that this beautiful season will soon be gone.  I will love and embrace autumn when it arrives, but until then, I want to be gloriously and completely saturated by summer.

Let the deep rich joy of being in the garden permeate my soul.  Let the fresh air move through my spirit and brush away the cobwebs.  Let the colors and light lift me out of dull routines and sloppy habits.

Let me bloom and grow...
            hair down,
                 feet bare,
                       heart wide open.

Wherever you are, whatever the weather, I wish you fresh air and an open heart.

You live in a northern clime I am guessing. Our summer has been blasting away for months!! Finally the hot is going and we are just getting the 80's!

I am in the north. It has been a mixed bag this year of too cool (a hard frost on June 4th!), too dry, and then too hot. The heat way was short here, so we got lucky, and it is back in the high 70s or low 80s this week and beautiful cool nights (good sleeping weather!)

Thanks for coming by! :)

I know! My eye doctor asked me, "So what are you going to do with your last 20 days before school starts?" Yikes. I want to be quiet, very quiet. I hope summer school is fun for you!
