Are my boots old? Is my coat torn?
Am I no longer young, and still not half-perfect? Let me
Keep my mind on what matters,
which is my work, which is mostly 
standing still and learning to be astonished."
    from the poem "Messenger" by Mary Oliver
 Green goodness - essence of summer.  Fresh mown grass, chilled smoothies, ripe avocados ...
 Letters from far away.  Letter from a heart-friend.  Just - because.
 Shorts.  Exercise. Sweat.  Hearing a guy say "love" when he means "zero".  Against the backdrop of smokey mountains.

Waning light casting shadow and pattern - weeds now noteworthy with it's definition

 Gathering flavors and familiar faces to sample and celebrate.

 Ending in sweetness...
 and Sentient.
Fully ready to close my eyes to a day lived well in wonder.
