Festival season...and the summer...are winding down. Early morning walks have a slight chill and the light has changed. Clouds are edged with pink and lilac and the colors are reflected in the sea below.
This is one of my favorite times of year, in part because of the possibilities that arise with change. And change is definitely in the air. I am looking forward to what is on the my walks and in my life.
Early morn
If you are local and have not yet made it to the art festivals here in Laguna you do have a few days left to do so. The Sawdust Art Festival goes through Sunday, September 2nd and the others are either on the same schedule or just a bit earlier so you had better move to come soon.  The days are getting cooler (at last!) and the evenings are delightful. So I hope to see some of you soon.

A quail by any other color...
It's just that time of summer I guess....I am dawdling (sometimes it feels more like slogging :)) along through the heat and humidity, hoping to reach the end of festival season intact. 
Creating is my simple solution to keeping the joy in all this. A walk along our local beaches gets the juices flowing and ideas percolating. So...why not a quail of just any old color? Or how about a crow? a raven? a finch? a grackle? The list is endless. The magic words, "Why not?"

Staying cool
While it's hard to stay cool when all around is heat, somehow it seems the Sawdust Art Festival, and Laguna Beach in general, seem to manage. The breezes continue to flow cool, especially up the canyons.
My yard is filled with birdsong and my Sawdust booth has baby birds chirping for food.  Life goes on and we all just move a bit more slowly to accommodate to the heat.
Entertainment at the festival keeps spirits up and an evening glass of wine helps a bit, too.
If you are anywhere near come on down, cool off,  and enjoy the evenings with us til 10 PM.
