Summer Magic


And, welcome, Summer! (on Wednesday, June 20)

"the beautiful season...Summer...
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light."
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

"It was June, and the world smelled of roses.  The sunshine was like powered gold over the grassy hillside."
-Maud Hart Lovelace

"And what is so rare as a day in June?"
-James Russell Lowell

"Summer afternoon-summer afternoon, to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language."-Henry James

"Breathless, we flung us on a windy hill, laughed in the sun, and kissed the lovely grass."
-Rupert Brooke

"Let us dance in the sun, wearing wild flowers in our hair..."
Susan Polis Schutz

"Each fairy breath of summer, as it blows with loveliness, inspires the blushing rose."
-Author Unknown

"I drifted into a summer-nap under the hot shade of July, serenaded by a cicadae lullaby, to drowsy-warm dreams of distant thunder."
-Terri Guillemets

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time."
-John Lubbock

"A single sunbeam is enough to drive away many shadows."
-St. Francis of Assisi

"A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken."
-James Dent

-Happy Father's Day!
-to my dad who is in spirit, to Greg's dad (who is 98 years old!), and to all fathers everywhere.

Positive thought:  For a more magical life, you might want to read Rhonda Byrne's wonderful book,  "The Magic."
Thanks for visiting!  Until next Sunday, Becky
