Seasonal Blogger

When the days are long. And summer is here. I am. A seasonal blogger.

I spend my time. In the dog park. In the yard. Looking at the tomato plants. Which have grown chin high. And are covered with clusters. Three. Four. A dozen. Of tomatoes. All green. Every day. I check. For the first tinge of pink. But every day. There are more. Green tomatoes.

The marido. Is in Oaxaca. On a human rights delegation. And then Chiapas. To the "Intergalactic Meeting Between the Zapatistas and the World.” The Zapatistas. And the world.

I plan. A fall trip. To India. Tea plantations in Darjeeling. Calcutta. Chennai. With a stop in Kathmandu. A city I love. Before my return.

In the meantime. I sit at my desk. And go to the dog park. And watch the tomatoes grow.

I am a seasonal blogger.

It's MORE than OK, it's a perfect way to spend the summer. Something we would all do well to emulate: get away from teh computer and get outside!

Enjoy, Lucia.

I love summer tomatoes. Nothing like the smell of a ripe homegrown tomato the size of your fist.

The tomatoes in the yard here are just beginning to turn red in the past few weeks. They're tasty and ripe.

I'm a spring person. Generally I'm inside more during the summer than either spring or fall.

Peace,

I like your season. Full of green things and growing things and time. Summer is the open possibility of our universe waiting to bloom. Everything seems to have decided to emit sunshine this year.
