July 2014: full-on summer.
I associate summer with rivers, baseball, heat, and gardens.
Here in my hometown the local team is enjoying its first season, and watching a game feels like time travel. Packs of kids run behind the bleachers. An owl in the eucalyptus across the field moves among the trees silently, perhaps seen only by me. Night comes on in that slow summer way, with darkness growing up from the earth.
Popcorn. Budweiser. Foul balls popped back into the parking lot. The fog coming in and cooling the crowd.
Enjoy your July, every day of it. Hope to see you at an upcoming event. I’ll post more of my readings as I know them.
