So, I’ve been fighting this HOT summer dry spell and truth be known, I’ve been losing. Some people struggle with light deprivation in the winter. They count down the days to spring. I struggle from nature deprivation in the summer. The heat and humidity drive me inside during the day and I often find myself in a sort of summer spiral, languishing like the maples in my front yard. Thank goodness for cool early mornings. Without them, I fear I would wilt away.
Today, I decided (take note: DECIDED) to fight again (after quitting for a day or two.) “Okay, ” I told myself…..“think of something cool and refreshing, then do something creative with it. Bring something into the world that wouldn’t have been there except for this (another) scorching day.” I guess one could say: function like the underground resistance. Go along with what is happening and then, pull a surprise attack from within! :)
This is a photo of my first homemade “Granita”. It’s blueberry with a sprig of mint on top. It’s cool, refreshing, and beautiful. Touche’ JULY!
