Summer Solace...

Summer Solace

"Not what we have, but what we enjoy,
constitutes our abundance."

- John Petit-Senn

I am fascinated by summer's pockets of peace found in nature's tucked away places. Visiting a botanic garden is sure to unearth such pleasures...

Where do you find your summer solace when the heat rises?

What a lovely picture! I don't know if it's solace, but I'm inside painting woodwork.

Fantastic quote! I heartily agree.

About Me

My photo
I have always been inspired by my Grandfather's particular generosity and encouragement, along with his love for others and nature. His spirit lives on, and the influence is quietly with me as I write and share. This is my small offering that I pray will bless others and allow them to become Simply Inspired. warmly, karen -xok.
Each day provides its own gifts.

- Marcus Aurelius
