Summer idyll

Let me tell you the story of summer —

Of long, hot evenings and herons skimming the sky.

Sunsetting.jpg

It’s a story of dogs and a lake

Dogs.jpg

And the sighting of beavers swimming in the pink-tinged water.

It’s the story of sharing a beautiful sunset

Beaver.jpg

With a stranger, who had driven all the way to my small part of the world,

From Russia with his family.

And now it’s a story I share with you.

    • The family drove for three days to get to my little spot of the world, in Sweden. They camped along the way and were at the local camp site next to the lake when I met them. They intended to drive through Norway and then back home again. (A long journey!)

  64. I am taking on this day, Sunday, with thoughts of your sunsets and images of your dogs and your friend from Russia. Intention for the day: Stop. Enjoy. Listen. Take pictures. No rushing. Until the free time is interrupted by the tasks for the day…. and then remembering that I am not promised the beginning and ending of each day, each moment. Time marches on some days I see the sunrise. Some days I don’t. Some days I see the sunset. Some days I don’t. And so it is.
