Summertime and the 'living is easy, fish are jumping...'. Ninety odd degrees 'in the shade'. Trying to remember the cold and wintry weather we had in New England to cool myself off. My little 'grand niece' said to her grandfather yesterday at their cook out, 'I think I like winter better.' as she jumped in the pool in her adorable little swim suit. Hope you are all enjoying the holiday weekend in the USA and elsewhere. Happy Day to you all.

  35. today i am especially grateful to rest in your reflective waters.
    here in Prescott, Az. this has been a devastating week to navigate. on friday after posting haiku my heart we went to the courthouse for the annual kiddie parade. nothing prepared us for the amazing honoring these children all came together to offer to our town. i redid my haiku page with photographs of the youngest of prescott offering their hearts as only children can. sunday standing outside on the road into prescott as each young man returned home was overwhelming in the enormity of loss striking so many families. it is heart warming to see our community come together in a force of love for all those torn apart by the enormity of loss. the courage and strength of the wives is humbling to say the least.
