playlist // spring awakening 18

I had always planned to make a large painting of the early spring, when the first leaves are at the bottom of the trees, and they seem to float in space in a wonderful way. But the arrival of spring can’t be done in one picture.
– David Hockney

To us, Spring is more than the show of colors and bluer skies [though that’s a lot of it]. It’s something within us, a new outlook, a brighter mood, a chance to make new connections… an awakening. So here’s to that new outlook, that new chance, and to you reading this – here’s to you. Thank you for all you do and share.

Enter the Dog Days of Summer

The Dog Days of Summer refers to that brutal period between July 3 and August 11 when the Summer is the hottest and most sultry. This period was named for a strong showing of Orion’s dog Sirius in the evening and morning sky.

Sirius rises late in the dark, liquid sky
On summer nights, star of stars,
Orion’s Dog they call it, brightest
Of all, but an evil portent, bringing heat
And fevers to suffering humanity.
~ Illiad
