C'mon Reya, get off your bum and get going!



I decided to feature the backs of people today because my back side needs a little kick to get it in gear. I have a busy, enjoyable day ahead - meeting people this morning, briefly, then I'm off to visit my friend in Annapolis.

It's a GORGEOUS, BEAUTIFUL, PERFECT early fall day today in the American mid-atlantic. Maybe my friend and I will get out in the kayaks on the Chesapeake this afternoon, or take a long walk down by the water with her little dog Cooper. I know we'll eat (her husband loves to cook) and drink and probably do art projects, because that's how we like to spend our time together. Fun!!

But between now and the time I head out to the Bay, there are many things I'm supposed to accomplish. So why am I here, doing this, not saying much? Ah. Creature of habit, aren't I? I guess!

Shabbat Shalom. xxoo. OK. I'm off .....

Sounds like a perfect day ahead. And I love the umbrella in the top photo.

Me too... I love the umbrella! She looks so coordinated with the oranges & it looks like her hair is red! Have a fabulous day!

and reya - there's the phrase "put your back into it" that comes to mind when i see these lovelies all doing just that in their own way. this summer has seen many of the people i value allow themselves to settle, even to move backwards or inwards. each of them has described the feeling of gratitude they have for that. with the sudden passage of summer into autumn-like weather and the return to school and the roiling skies there's a sort of imperative about life and living inside it and beside it and especially to celebrate it. so i love the orange top and the umbrella and the feeling that i'm following yoko ono on a dc afternoon walk. out there. living life. celebrating it. steven
