What is it about Summer that has us all running in a thousand directions? To the point where we even shirk our blog posting responsibilities? Doesn’t it feel like Summer thumbs its nose at introspection anyway? That it tosses out a giant *raspberry* to serious reading? Well, maybe that’s a good thing.
During my hiatus from here, I tackled the manual for my camera. And, explored Contemporary Landscape Photography: Professional Techniques for Capturing Spectacular Settings and How to Photograph Absolutely Everything. I followed link after link in my current near-daily diet of photo-storytelling blogs. And explored the National Geographic Image Collection. I really read my subscribed-to magazines. And explored Fancy Nancy and the Sensational Babysitter. I really read non-subscribed-to magazines with English Breakfast tea and super-fresh oatmeal raisin cookies at Barnes and Noble. And, I explored Tea and Crumpets: Recipes and Rituals from Tearooms and Cafes. And since it IS Summer, I explored Tomato: a Fresh-from-the-Vine Cookbook. Summer heaven. Summer reads. How about you?
