Me and the mister were sitting out on the deck last night listening to summer come to a close in our northern state. The sound of the crickets, tree frogs, and buzzing cicada’s got so loud at one point we looked at each other and laughed out loud. I remembered laying in my childhood bed with my head on the windowsill listening to the same sounds, knowing that September had arrived bringing cooler nights for sleeping and a new school year. That’s me on the right with my brother David, my sister Amy, and our happy little baby sister Carrie.
I walk without flinching through the burning cathedral of the summer. My bank of wild grass is majestic and full of music. It is a fire that solitude presses against my lips. ~Violette Leduc

What a great picture and some great memories you have! Happy WW!
what fond memories!
you two look so much alike–adorable of course.
I went out last night and it was screaming out; those bugs were hollering the end of silence. I hate that!
I love the summer noises as well.
Happy Wednesday! This week I’m featuring an elephant over at History Is Elementary, a wonderful place in Atlanta for a girly lunch over at Georgia on My Mind, and over at Got Bible? I featured an ancient New Testament town.

That’s such a cute family photo. We have a simialr one in our family. I like the quote by Leduc. I just wrote a poem about fire and posted it with a photo for Skywatch Friday!
