blooming flowers brutal heat
beauty and the beast
I wish I could say I’ve been traveling, going on adventures, or even going out hiking, but the reality is I’ve mostly been indoors, walked some around the neighborhood, and gone on one hike at a nearby lake. I’m grateful that we haven’t had the intense heat wave that is impacting much of the country. The summer heat always makes me want to find water to swim and play. Yet for some reason, I haven’t sought out water this year and really haven’t been doing much outdoors at all. And still, I’m grateful for the moments of beauty and peace that come from my limited time in nature this summer. While many of my friends are having outdoor adventures, I’m playing along in my imagination.
Whatever you do, may your heart be full of peace.
