jumbles of words

there are summer days that are meant for running and then there are some that are meant for lounging in the cool grass. these photos are from a running around day of enjoying new friends at the Chicago Honey Co-op tomato potluck dinner fundraiser for Terra Madre. a beautiful slice of apiary heaven on Chicago's less than perfect west side.

also the lounging summer fare, a game of scrabble. m only beat me by five points on this one. but i spelled ai, which is a three-toed sloth, in case you're wondering. and vrouw, which is a dutch woman. i picture her with a white hat on, but do what you will in your own mind with such a fun yet reasonable word.

I have taken akin to this line of poetry from Before the Storm by Louise Gluck, so I thought I'd share it outloud:

The mountain stands like a beacon, to remind the night that the earth exists,

that it mustn’t be forgotten.

it's a lovely summary of thought.
