summer afternoon

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon;
to me those have always been the two most beautiful words
in the English language.”
Henry James
Those days of Summer are upon us... dog days if you will.
A time to do everything you want... or nothing at all.
My mind always goes back to my childhood and summertime in Texas.

Church picnics on Sunday afternoon.
Swimming in the river in cut-off shorts.
Spotting bluebonnets on the side of the road.
 Riding our bikes to the next little town down the hi-way.
 Searching for scorpions in the back field.
Exploring the world.
We didn't have a lot of money growing up, but we sure had a lot of life.

Glad Midsommar... by the way. :)
