July. The Queen of Summer. July, my favorite month. Summer is a wonderful time, but its not summer here.
On my way to work on a cold, bracing winter’s Perth day. And I’m thinking.
My mind’s on many things. Work, global issues. Projects, bills to pay, houseguests arriving, dinner to make. You know, the usual.
Everyone’s issues, nothing new. But I think its the global issues that my mind is pinned most on. Perhaps its simply the one right after the other without let up, thats getting to people I talk to. As a society, we can’t close our eyes and ignore those little cries for help. Can we?
But we do need a time out. A breather.
Summer is Fine
Flipped the radio on, real low.
And a song not heard for years, played…. its sweet summer light notes, sending my mind and spirit tumbling playfully back in time.
I turned it up just a bit.
Seals and Croft’s “Summer Breeze” gently guided my dreary world weary thoughts, back into a delightful summer’s day.
I turned up the volume a wee bit more!
Sweet days of summer.
“July is dressed up and playing her tune”
summer flowers are in full swing…..
Did you see the curtains hanging in the window?
See the curtains hangin’ in the window,
in the evenin’ on a Friday night.
A little light a-shinin’ through the window,
lets me know everything is alright.
Summer breeze, makes me feel fine,
blowing through the jasmine in my mind.
See the smile a-waitin’ in the kitchen
SEALS and CROFT “SUMMER BREEZE”
And at this stage, the volume was cranked up very loud. I was thoroughly enjoying myself. My imagination was in full swing and I was in Summer. Feeling just Fine!!
It makes me feel fine.
Thank you, Seals and Croft for such a timeless song, that epitomises the best of summer.
Thank you readers for coming along on my Summer Breeze post today.
I hope, that you too…….. Feel Fine.
Houseguests have arrived from overseas for some July celebrations! So my sister and I will be doing abit of sightseeing around Perth and Western Australia for the next couple of weeks. Should be great fun!
My posts may have a slightly interrupted and irregular schedule due to ‘July Celebrations’. You understand!
