It was an indeed a light wash and as it is now August and summer has but a few aging weeks before it tumbles down the stairs to her inevitable death let us all strive to enjoy these last blistering hot days. Go forth friends, see some outdoor Shakespeare, drink beer on a stoop in Brooklyn, write outside in a park, under a tree even, dream some crazy dreams surrounded by hazy summer mist. For in a few short weeks we’ll all be missing Summer’s glowing, sweating face.
