A glimpse of summer these past few days -- deep blue sky and leafing trees, thunderstorms at night. Instruments after sundown by a little fire, singing and being all together again. Brats on the grill, potato salad, and rhubarb crisp; basketball, biking, and some more rain. And more than anything the green light of sunshine through the trees, and the smell of lilacs on the air.

The cool grilling dudes 



the lily-of-the-valley smelled heavenly
