So summer is here and I am thrilled – it means sleeping in late, tons of fresh berries and omelettes with pesto sauce. Fresh salads of tomatoes, mozzarella cheese. olive oil and yes more basil! This morning I enjoyed some great whole wheat bread from a local bakery and it was slathered with butter and mimosa jam. The jam was from Stonewall Kitchen – one of my favorite companies.
I. Love. Summer. Even 90 degrees – even 90 + degrees and high humidity…summer is just so luscious, sensuous and dramatic. An attractive dramatic, in a way zero degrees and a blizzard is not.

So I got into my e-course “Unraveling” as if I needed lessons in how to unravel – well apparently I do. I received notice of the new course starting and I procrastinated (but only overnight) thinking I’d sleep on it and enroll in the morning. Well the course sold out in seven hours – 150 students. So with a little help from a generous universe I managed through the grace of it’s host to get into the e-course. It begins July 13 and I am looking forward to the challenge of delving into my creativity, as well as my psyche. You can visit Susannah’s website here to learn more about it.
The June training courses have all started and it will be a busy summer there – now I need to sit down and prepare a schedule and start promoting the next sessions in August & September. I really feel a need to get a vacation in this summer if only to our families summer place. A week or even something short of a week staring at a lake and dipping my toes in the water after dark is something I think I need.
Oh and I am reading “Art & Fear” (observations on the perils and rewards of art making) and I highly, highly recommend it.
So come share your comments – what are your favorite things about summer?
