Hump Day and Heat

Day 195 of 365:

Happy Hump Day?  Happy Half-Way-Through-The-Week Day?  Sure, why not.

Oh the heat today – wow.  Humidity and high temps don’t usually bother me, you know that, right?  I am a total summer girl – but my goodness.  Even I’ll admit I was feeling more than a little sweaty today.  And yes, it kinda got to me.

But giving the garden a drink and letting the water wash over my bare toes was nice…a fun way to bring down my internal thermometer a few degrees….


And that’s all I have for today.  A crazy-busy work schedule kept me from doing any writing and I don’t really have the energy anyway.  Though my novel was on my mind quite a bit as I made a two-hour commute in my car this afternoon.  Long drives are excellent for sorting things out in your head.  I suppose I could do some work tonight on the old WIP, but….well…..I won’t.  I’ll just go to bed, hot and sweaty and exhausted, and then get up with the birds at 5 am tomorrow morning and power though a couple of thousand words.  Same old, same old.

Why do I feel like I am rambling?

Gonna go back outside and finish watering my garden, I think…maybe splash around a bit in the sprinkler.  They say that tomorrow is going to be even hotter….

Namaste and keep cool, where ever you are.

The Beautiful Contrast

Day 132 of 365:

{Weekly Photo Challenge: Earth}


This, to me, is Earth – the juxtaposition of elements and textures blended together, complimenting one another.

If the earth were to change tomorrow, cease to exists as we know it, this display of contrast and harmony is what I would miss most of all.

Sunday: Edge

Day 108 of 365:

{Simple, Single Image on Sunday}


…when you find yourself standing between stillness and movement.  In the middle a hard line and soft contours…somewhere within the dominion of holding on and letting go.

There’s a  pause inserted between the sharp inhale and the release of the exhale….

…and it is here that you have found your breath…
