City living in the summer.

May we all channel our endless summer spirit.

“August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time.” -Sylvia Plath

It's been a good summer. A summer making things – writing stories, making plans, making lists, seeing old friends, taking time to pause and slow down – in the face of the inevitable forward march of time.
