While I generally don’t enjoy hot weather, summer is a great time of year to do needed repairs to home and garden. Summer is the time of year when all of the work I put into my vegetable garden repays me with a bounty of fresh foods for the table or into the freezer for later use. It is also a time of year when we should all take a moment and breathe deeply. For when we consciously breathe and take time to appreciate all that we have, we notice the beauty of our world.
Something else worthy of notice are the infinite number of stars in the heavens above. If you follow this link you can learn how to identify what is called the Summer Triangle – comprised of Altair, Deneb and Vega. For a start you will need a clear evening. Just after sunset you need to look to the east to find this constellation.
On this spinning ball of blue we go round and round. There are a finite number of summers we may enjoy. Use the time wisely, because before you know it, your life here will be done.
