Some Summer Love

Souvenir from the SI Yankee game in June.

My two girls in the rooftop pool at the Chelsea Hotel in AC, NJ

Doing what we do in LI, NY

It's been an okay summer. 
Nothing like last summer, my "Summer of Love, 2012."  That would be our best summer ever.
This summer just felt like extended time off from work.
Lots of transitions.
Lots of spiritual transformation which is always good, but sometimes can feel awkward.
Lots of "in-betweens."
Lots of differences from summers past: 
No camp for my girl...Instead Vacation Bible Schools, which were awesome; one I volunteered at...GREAT EXPERIENCE.
I had a foster baby son who I ache for daily. 
That has been difficult emotionally.
We had a six-year old come and go. 
We were okay with that.
Lots of fireworks and beaches.
Lots of time with friends. 

The weather this summer was hot, oppressive. The air feels strange.
Looking forward to going to the shore next week.
The ocean water will be refreshing and cleansing.
Looking forward to a full-moon kirtan in the city.
...A visit to the Ganesha temple tomorrow and Oneness Fountain Heart restaurant on Tuesday.
Movie night, dinner, and cupcaking making with sweet friends today.

Summer vacation is almost over.

I feel like asking, "When is summer going to arrive?"

Namaste, Friends. 
Love and Light.
