September and its discontents

Every September I’m startled by the heat this month brings.
A heat that, if you’re not careful, can wick away inspiration.
But then that’s what photos like this are for.

At least two more months to go before the winter rains.
Right now, if I had a backhoe, I’d dig up the garden and make it a place for the worship of water.

    M&G, I know you guys need some inspiration too after your run of bad luck, so I’m glad you like it.

    The models on that CK shoot probably thought all those cactus were pretty.

    Okay, so heat makes me snark. What miserable weather!

    Denise, you have summed up my feelings about this month exactly.

  4. Denise says:

    Hoov, you have every reason to be snarky. It’s your right this month.
    Pam, when I think of you in Austin, I’m ashamed of bringing up how hot I think it is here!

    It’s all relative, Denise. I know you’re with me in spirit! 😉
