Sun so hot I forgot to go home

I walk without flinching through the burning cathedral of the summer. My bank of wild grass is majestic and full of music. It is a fire that solitude presses against my lips.

This whole week has been burning, really burning - about 100 degrees, we're having a heat wave...a tropical heat wave...I feel a song coming on:) Anyways, the other day the famiglia and I off headed off to City Island (a small island in the river that connects to the city of Harrisburg) for a stroll, stocked up with plenty of cool water and some munchies. As we walked and talked and laughed, I didn't even realize how hot it really was or what discomfort I may have been in. I was purely distracted by the fun I was having with Albert and Keane. I wouldn't have wanted to spend any heat wave of an afternoon any other way.

Hope you are keeping cool too darlings! (or warm, if it's winter where you are)
Enjoy your weekend!

Love,

    It's great to see you can still look well put together even during a heat wave (this is difficult for me.) I hope the temperature isn't too harsh on you!
