The Burning Cathedral of Summer

The Burning Cathedral of Summer

“come on in, we’re not ready.”

I thought it was high time for a Friday roundup and review.

Summer is finally heating up, I mean activity-wise. Suddenly every weekend of the month is full and I’m not quite sure how I feel about that… but there are some lovely things to look forward to including a trip to Michigan to see the family and a weekend in New York.  And then there are the simple (free) things like Shakespeare in the park in Boston, The Wizard of Oz in Portsmouth and Buster Keaton in The General at the Gulu-Gulu Ccafe.

finally, a quote:

“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

Have a lovely weekend everyone!
