the things of summer

William Lamson solarium © Storm King Art Center Admiring: Solarium by William Lamson, a greenhouse with 162 windowpanes made with carmelized sugar on a hilltop in Mountainville, New York. Love.

Reading: The Sense of an Ending by Julian Barnes. 'A reflection on time, aging, memory, and remorse'. I'm taking full advantage of my library card and the wonderful Multnomah County Library app, which allows me to reserve books endlessly with the touch of a finger.

Baking: Granola with dried apricots and blueberries, strawberry shortcake cake, and bread with zucchini fresh from my sister's garden. It feels great to be in the kitchen again, mixing and measuring while NPR plays in the background.

Anticipating: A long weekend at the beach, time to enjoy family, reading, and exploring. And also a chance to stare at the waves and think about how I'd like the next months to unfold. Sneak peeks on instagram.
