you don"t need to save the crystal for a special day, even water tastes better in a "Fancy Glass"

Summer Pause

Summer is winding down.
A big hot sultry season with wins and losses.
Lists and accomplisments.
We still have some long roads to walk.
But we are looking ahead and preparing-
From this brief pause in the summer sun.

Yesterday was a day of Toasts!
Cheers to me, and 45 years.
Cheers to breakfasts, lunches, cafes and dinners.
Cheers to LIFE! in all of it's bubbles, and creams, and rich flavors.
Cheers to celebrating each moment.

Pitfalls, Potholes, and Hidden Tacks

Sometimes watching out
for hidden tacks and slippery slopes
is a full time job.

Droopy sunny heads and blossoms

Droopy summer sunflowers
I am alternately energetic and wilted
optimistic and overwhelmed
skilled and screwed up
as the blue hazy skies change from clear to cloudy and back again
and the heat rolls off the city streets

bits of beauty

so I walk a certain part of my area every day
sometimes multiple times
zoning out, usually...
But there are bits a beauty everywhere, and I decided
I am going to pay attention
and share
and revel
in "a place"
wherever I go.

well and truly summer

Hot days and sultry nights
hours of fireworks
beaches and ice in colors nature never intended
sugar sweet stickiness and oh the flowers
lazy bobbing heads of yellow and black
it is well, and truly summer
