Experience is never limited, and it is never complete; it is an immense sensibility, a kind of huge spider-web of the finest silken threads suspended in the chamber of consciousness, and catching every air-borne particle in its tissue.
~ Henry James
I took a walk in the woods the other day and in the middle of the pathway, hanging in mid-air, was a small cluster of pine needles. This morning I came across the quote by Henry James and the two fit together so well that I couldn’t resist sharing the coincidence.
It has been cloudy and/or rainy here over the past two days. I’m enjoying it. Without the sun beating down on us, the temperature hasn’t been quite as high as on a normal August day. I was able to get some weeding done in the garden. I mowed. I got caught up on household chores. Now that it is raining again, I have time to go through photos from when my granddaughters and their parents came to visit.
Maybe I’ll get caught up before the next round of family visitors arrive. August is going to be a busy month, I think. And if I don’t get caught up? Well, that’s okay, too.
The photos in this post were taken in Ocean City or on Assateague Island. A fun time was had by all, and I’m still having fun with the memories.
That’s about it from me on this beautiful rainy day. Thanks for stopping by. I don’t think we’ll see a sunset tonight, but if the clouds should happen to clear, let’s head to the Point. Sunset is at 8:06 PM. If you can’t make it, maybe I’ll see you for the weekend coffee chat. Either way or otherwise, have a great weekend!
Be good, be kind, be loving. Just Be. 🙂
Today’s joys: Watching the rain; cooler temperatures and a rest from all the bright, sunny days we’ve been having; clean sheets on the bed; tomatoes from the garden (is there anything better than a freshly picked tomato?); sorting through images.
