Summer Heat

Quote for the Week

Today is the first day of summer. Here in Texas, it's hot as a sidewalk in Hell, assuming they have sidewalks in Hell. So heat is on my mind, especially since I need to store some things in the attic today. Five minutes up there, and I'll lose 5 pounds.

I want to quote part of a passage from Mad In Pursuit, by the late French author Violette Leduc.

"I walk without flinching through the burning cathedral of the summer."

I love summer, but this summer seems especially warm. The description of it as a burning cathedral seems particularly appropriate.

Takeaway Truth

Like I tell my Mom who complains about the heat. Enjoy it. You'll miss it when winter comes.
