Stifling, humid, hot
Cicadas sang me to sleep
Robin's song woke me.

I like that.

Have you noticed the days getting shorter? The katydids clicking at night to warn of the oncoming fall? Sigh. Can't believe August is nearly over.

Lin, thank you. Yes I've noticed. Yesterday was the 103rd anniversary of my mother's birth. We always observed her birthday as, well, a harbinger of fall.
