passing white daisies

Newer Older

The first week of August hangs at the very top of summer, the top of the live-long year, like the highest seat of a Ferris wheel when it pauses in its turning. The weeks that come before are only a climb from balmy spring, and those that follow a drop to the chill of autumn, but the first week of August is motionless, and hot. It is curiously silent, too, with blank white dawns and glaring noons, and sunsets smeared with too much color. ~ Natalie Babbitt, Tuck Everlasting

    Oh boy this looks good! Not that much August for me as first week of August for me is like the moment when you realize ferris wheel got broken and your about to fall down... but maybe it's the same thing, some just know how to say it prettier :P
