Summer's End

Tuesday, August 26, 2014

Down By the Bay

Hello, sun in my face. Hello, you who made the morning and spread it over the fields and into the faces of the tulips and the nodding morning glories, and into the windows of, even, the miserable and the crotchety –

Watch, now, how I start the day in happiness, in kindness.

-Mary Oliver
