It's the only time of year when the days feel oppressively identical. The same light, the same heat, the same lethargy ... - Carol Wolper, Secret Celebrity
I read this passage in a book recently and it struck me so forcefully that I had to write it down. It's precisely that feeling I'm battling on this sunny summer afternoon ... that I battle most summer afternoons on my corner of Katy. It's why the recent rainy spells were so welcome and why I already miss them. Even in the shade out front the sun is so bright it hurts my eyes.
Shoot, even INSIDE the light is so bright it's painful ... and I find myself longing for just the smallest of tropical storms to make its way in from the Gulf. No hurricanes, though.
