Summertime...

and the living is easy. So the song goes. 

I haven't abandoned my poor blog, but I have decided to take this summer off from blogging. My poetic well is completely dry and it's time to refresh the spirit. There are trips, graduations, weddings, coming up...as is always the way at this time of year. I wish everyone a glorious and beautiful warm weather season. If you're in areas where the chill of winter approaches, you have my sympathies! :) Mind you, there's a lot to be said for the smell of woodsmoke and necessity of curling up with a good book on a miserable day. There's also a lot to be said for warm breezes, long daylight hours, and the occasional T-storm to keep us on our toes.

See you when the leaves begin to change, kids are buying school supplies, and mothers and fathers everywhere are heaving sighs of relief.

Dear Kim!
__Have a great Family Summer, and if possible, just stop by to say hello! __Too, use the time to gather up your "scribble notes." We'll all look forward to your work!

See you in the fall.
You will be missed.

I am taking a trip to NS in Sept with my husband and can't wait, to see the ocean again will be awesome!

Take care.

Have a lovely summer, Kim. You've left us with a lovely picture that tempers the boldness of the season with the coolness of water.

I never had a well to draw from. But I understand. The good shtufffs will pop out, regardless which gear the mind is in.

In summer, we live in a country that begs, demands and teases to be explored, dug into, lived in and loved -despite the things that bite. Find a shweeeet spot, degas and shake the stink of oneself. Me. I plan to get silly again.

I love the swirly water around the swan. I'll miss your beautiful blog posts, but quite understand.

There are no graduations or weddings coming up for me during the summer, but possibly in the future. For me it's more about grass cutting and planting but with a trip thrown in to make life a bit more fun.

Have a lovely summer Talon!

Nifty swan reflection!
I long for the summer-long vacas of youth, now that I'm a workaholic for tourist times. Not an option to step away at this point for me.

Have a glorious warm season!

It's nice to hear from you Kim, it's good that you take time, seasons are strange now, so relax enjoy what you do best and thank you for being such a good photographer, no worries you'll get you writing groove before you have time to pick up a pen...;)

Lorraine Renaud said...

goes without saying but I'LL SAY IT ANYWAY, totally love this photo... and every morning when I get up i look through your lenses, and that fabulous photo of an ocean-view through the window, that is my summer and I AM GRATEFUL

Sara said...

Hey, I'm late, but I just wanted to say I'll miss you. On the other hand, I know how life can keep you busy:~)

Enjoy your summer, my friend, but don't work too hard, okay? Remember, to walk barefoot outside every once in awhile or just sit outside in the sun, enjoying it's warmth:~)

This is the most beautiful wildlife photo I have ever seen. This I say without fear of contradiction. Your talent is of the finest order. Rest easy and have a fine summer. Count Sneaky.

Granny Annie said...

Hello my missed friend. Isn't Summer officially over now? Hope you still plan to return. Looked at the beautiful Harvest moon and thought about you:)

Geraldine said...

I took the summer off from blogging too and it was a good decision. Summer time is soooo short, it was great to spend more time outdoors. Back to blogging now though.

I hope you had a wonderful summer Kim!
