This is usually the time of year that I realize how unappreciative I am of summer, and pine for its return. Until it arrives of course, and I’m ungratefully longing for cooler temps and sweaters. Until then, I’m looking back at some of my past summer adventures to get some warm weather vibes.

the moon waxes, wanes pulling my thoughts like the tide shaping my dreams
The beginning of May is always an exciting time for me, because it is finally consistently warm enough to sit outside during my lunch break. Few things make me happier. It just seems easier to write when I’m surrounded by warm sun and fresh air, versus frigid air conditioning and muffled phone conversations. Above is the view from the outside seating at a local breakfast spot I like to frequent. What’s your favorite spot?
Of all the seasons, winter is the most conducive to the great art of dormancy. This art requires an appreciation of semi-consciousness: the beautiful and necessary prelude to sleep – a special pleasure in itself that is all too often neglected, under-valued or looked down upon. –Michael Leunig
