Welcome Summer

 hello!

summer has arrived! i’ve had some wonderful adventures to begin one of my most favorite seasons; seeing new places and making new friends. the garden is planted and even though it’s been difficult to tend to it (due to an abundance of rain), things are going well.

i’ve read a wonderful story that i think would appeal to all ages: The Curious Snowflake  by james struck. it’s available in the amazon kindle store for an extremely reasonable price. the good news is that you don’t have to own a kindle to purchase it. there is also a link to The Curious Snowflake blog listed in my blogroll. take a look for instant inspiration.

a change of scenery is just what i needed to revive and inspire me.

what revives and inspires you?

peace,

julayne

ps happy birthday dad

Clouds

henry county, indiana

hello!

lots of stormy clouds to look at around here lately. it was also hot and muggy too. i’m happy to report that today even though the clouds are still here, it’s much cooler. actually, it’s downright chilly! this is indiana after all.

now that school is out, i’m thinking about summer activities and one of those is a summer reading list. i think i will start with some short works by tolstoy. last summer i read knut hamsun and dostoyevsky and enjoyed them very much. jumping ahead a century and continents, i think anything by jack kerouac is a good summer read. i came across on the road; the original scroll at the library. kerouac typed the original manuscript single spaced and in one long sentence  and taped the ends of the pages together; all rolled up into one awesome, holy scroll. the beats bible.  i’ve read parts of it and i think it would be a great summer read; even better than the originally published version. classic american.

what is on your summer reading list?

peace & books,

julayne
