It sure is hot! I love summer though. So, no complaints from me. I spent some time with paper, paints, and an old favorite poem this week.
When I Heard the Learn'd Astronomer
By Walt Whitman
When I heard the
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,
When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,
How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I wander’d off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.

Hamish has been up to his usual hijinks...can you say WAHOO!?
I'll be hosting Spiritual Thursday for August right here. I'll have a post up Wednesday evening. This month's theme is the word, respect.
Many thanks to Rebecca for hosting this week's round-up at Sloth Reads.
