"We try to hold on to the last days of bare arms and legs. Early caches of sunflower seeds stored by eager squirrels sprout a leggy forest hoping for just a little bit more. Just a wee bit more. Don't let go. We only have sixty-four? Eighty-seven? Ninety-four summers if we are lucky. We hold on and take the last quick swim just to say that we did."
--Nikki McClure, Collect Raindrops: The Seasons Gathered
My September pledge? Take in, soak up, and dive in. Just a wee bit more.
I hope you're having a lovely - perhaps long - September weekend. I'll see you back here on Tuesday.
