Katydids, day and night, chirping back and forth, back and forth, occasional soloist, an intoxicating rhythm.
Warm evenings that hug you as you step outside.
Endless hours on the porch swing: reading, thinking, crying, being.
Ripe tomatoes, fresh from the vine, still warm from the afternoon sun, sliced thick and carefully placed on Wonder Bread with just a smidge of Duke’s mayonnaise and several shakes of salt.
Okra blossoms, the softish of yellow, opening up in the warmth and humidity.
A cool breeze, causing a momentary shiver, a harbinger of fall weather that will be upon us soon.
Dad’s birthday. Remembering him and the gifts he shared. Missing him.
