“And July in her eyes hath place” –all nature sings in ‘April is in my mistress face’-madrigal.
As today is out with July and tomorrow is in with August, the sunshine & heat of summer is continuing in full glorious days.
….”Vancouver woman waits for nod to begin swim across English Channel”….”
Fun to note that Vancouver’s Jesse Harewicz is into a 7-day waiting window where she will attempt to swim across the English Channel. “She has her pilot boat waiting, her food packed, and hours of training in the cold waters of B.C. behind her. Now she waits for the weather to co-operate and for her to get the nod that the swim is on. She will learn by 7:30 p.m. the day before her swim will start. Known as the Everest of swims — it will be much tougher conditions than the Georgia Strait. The water is very salty, it’s windy, in open ocean, and the currents are so strong that you have to swim across them.”
All good wishes Jesse!
A perfect July summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken. ~ adapt. James Dent
I question not if thrushes sing,
If roses load the air;
Beyond my heart I need not reach
When all is summer there.
~John Vance Cheney
A life without love is like a year without summer. ~adapt. Swedish Proverb
Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language. ~Henry James
Cheers to a fine July summer day!
