Coolness in the Heat

Though the summer solstice is still a few days away today feels like summer.  The temperature is fifteen degrees above normal and a thunderstorm is predicted.  By the evening, if the storms come bringing much needed rain, the air will be cool again and the atmosphere less heavy.  In the meantime, we swelter.

 On days like this, the sight of gold fish swimming in a pond brings refreshment.  Strings of frog eggs promise new life.

 During this season of plenty may we grow in respect and gratitude for each creature we hear, see, touch, taste and smell.  What would our lives be without them?
