the lightness of being

i wonder if summer simply in it's precious way inspires a lightness of being. so much so that if what i hope and intend to do seems to drift into air ...undone yet. but somehow i'm not worried. though i can be a procrastinator, so much of this is indeed just summertime having it's way, in the most wonderful way! urging a glance at flowers, delicious summer salads, gorgeous sunsets with italian gelato, walks along the boardwalk, reading stories ...and i don't mind.
as the children are returning to school, and perhaps we're beginning to lend or thoughts to fall time and all that needs to be done, there's still moments to be savored of summertime bliss...

hope your days are lovely and light!

A lovely pic but to be honest, I am tired of the overly warm days and long for the cool bite of autumn.....

That way, when a lovely Indian summer day strikes in October, it is very appreciated too...

In a lot of ways, summer is a state of mind. A feeling of flying loose. I plan to keep that kind of spirit alive. Take a leisurely walk, and just savor the smells of this moment's trees and plants.

hi Lavinia, i know a few people who are ready for this summer heat to disapear. since i suffer when it gets cold, i try to hold on to summer as long as possible. i tease my friends often by saying 'every dog has it's day:)'

Susu, summer as a state of mind is such a nice thought. i'll need it when it cools off. i tend to close in and hibernate until the warmth returns. but a change in perspective might do me good so that i'm not only 'open and living' for half a year...
