(almost) wordless wednesday

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

  1. 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!

  2. 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!
