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

playlist // late winter 2016

If we could only find that comfort throughout these short days of winter, I’m sure Springtime wouldn’t seem so far off. So here’s to down comforters, a cool pillow, a warm cup of coffee or tea, a brilliant sunset and all of the other comforting moments that get lost as we struggle to crawl out of winter.

2 // Bloodstyle – Caroline Smith
3 // I Wanna Be Adored – The Ravonettes
4 // Wake Me – Lucius
5 // Aquarium – Nosaj Thing
