“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”
John Lubbock, The Use Of Life
One More Time: Click on the music for this Summertime Series
We have been remembering with great fondness, a collidescope of images from the past that mean summertime to each of us. We’ve been thinking about what our summers are like now. I hope you have enjoyed the quotes I have used to add richness to these posts.
June has long been associated with weddings, so I think it is appropriate for this last post in this series to remember a wedding in South Carolina; a daughter of dear friends. This is a second marriage for the bride and groom, the merging of two families. Another wedding filled with laughter, music, and the scent of flowers in the air. Not kids anymore, I feel sure the bride and groom have acquired the ability to rest in idleness from time to time watching the clouds float by. Let all of us remember that this is not a waste of time, but something we learned how to do while growing up, something summer provided time for, a moment we can still benefit from. Wishing everyone a great rest of the summer!
