Welcome if you are visiting because you are on the 2016 A to Z Post Challenge Road Trip This is a series during the month of June celebrating Summertime
“There are two times in a person’s life when there is the possibility of pure happiness: in youth and in summer.” Brielle A. Marino, THE LAST EVE
We may have left our youth behind, but summer stretches before us. I have written in Greening of a Heart, the idea that we are not always happy, but joy abides. Living an examined life, praying, practicing resurrection, these things sustain us even when we are unhappy. This series of posts about summertime, is in hopes that we can recapture what summer once meant to us and have gotten too busy to enjoy. Take time today to notice the greenness of things. Dan Simmons writes well about this very thing.
“The beauty of that June day was almost staggering. After the wet spring, everything that could turn green had outdone itself in greenness and everything that could even dream of blooming or blossoming was in bloom and blossom. The sunlight was a benediction. The breezes were so caressingly soft and intimate on the skin as to be embarrassing.”
