Friends, I encourage you to start going to a photo blog I've just created on PBase.com. Click here to see it, and be sure to bookmark it for future reference. I'll be updating it daily.
The waning days of summer
As the Labor Day weekend gets underway here in the U.S., every moment of warm sun, green grass and leaves, flowers in bloom--even those on their last legs like the ones shown here--becomes precious. I scoot down our neighborhood streets with heightened appreciation for the gift of summer, my favorite season. Already I see the occasional red leaf, but I don't want to photograph it. Not yet. Fall will come soon enough, barreling through on gusty winds with outrageously brilliant colors. But today, all I want to do is savor the birdsong that comes through my open bedroom windows, air so warm it caresses my skin like a tender lover, clothing so light I even don't know it's there, and a long holiday weekend of glorious, free jazz in downtown Detroit. I know the season to come will bring lessons in letting go, but not yet. I'm not ready to learn those lessons just yet. Today is for holding tight to the wonders around me, the joy whose name is summer.
