Happy Jeweleye

A jewel of a day to many would be one with pleasant temps and low humidity, a puffy-cloud, blue-sky day. Today is not like that. It is muggy and hot. The insects are singing their fevered chorus and the birds are chirping listlessly in the background.

But to me it's a jewel of a July day. Perfect in its very July-ness. Yes, there are heat warnings. But this is summer: It's supposed to be hot.  And yes, we move more slowly now, but isn't that one of summer's great gifts, that it's andante instead of allegro?

So here's to summer, to the heat and humidity, even the torpor. Happy Jeweleye!
