The long, hot summer

August 3rd, 2009 by judytalks

August, and that wonderful time of year, summer, is nearly over. Growing up in Wisconsin, we ran barefoot, hopped rocks in the shallow part of the Fox River, ate ice cream, and watched outdoor movies in the public park.
Here in Arizona, it’s too hot to even go outside most of the day, let alone go barefoot. But it rains. And blows and cleans the earth, while settling red dust on the car, screens, and anything that stands still.
It’s countdown time to our trip to the Twin Cities for family fun and book talks and signings for A Child’s Grief. My mission is to inform and inspire adults to understand the needs of children experiencing the loss of a parent. Loss in general is the social marker today, and we somehow remain in the dark about its impact and the road to recovery.
I hope you are enjoying your summer. Picnics, vacations, family reunions, the beach, lying under a tree with a good book, all ways to unwind a little and shake off the tension of hard work.
Here’s to more ice cream.
