Indian Summer

The temperatures are still in the upper 80’s in Kentucky and Tennessee. Some leaves are starting to turn but spots of summer color remain. By next weekend it will be in the 60’s and fall will take her seasonal turn.

“I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere and don’t notice it.” Shug Avery in Alice Walker’s “The Color Purple”
“The quality of life is in proportion, always, to the capacity for delight. The capacity for delight is the gift of paying attention.”
Julie Cameron
“There is so much we overlook, while the abundance around us continues to shimmer, on its own.” —Naomi Shihab Nye
Instructions for living a life:
Pay attention.
Be astonished.
Tell about it.
