This is my forty second entry for Paula’s Thursday Inspiration. This week’s theme is summer. I hope everyone will enjoy this new post of mine. Here’s a link to Paula’s blog https://lightmotifs.wordpress.com/2020/07/09/thursday-inspiration-64/
Summer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling after spring and before autumn. At or around the summer solstice (about 3 days before Midsummer Day), the earliest sunrise and latest sunset occurs, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition, and culture. When it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.

the Hindi song “Indian
Summer” by Jai Wolf?

to go swimming during the
summer months each year.

“I was lucky enough not to face any required summer reading lists until I went to college. So I still think of summer as the best time to read for fun.”
~ Margaret Haddix
“The sweltering summer of the Negro’s legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality.”
~ Martin Luther King, Jr.
“My mother was willing to support art as a summer program for me. She never supported it as a career decision until I won the National Gallery Portrait Competition.”
~ Amy Sherald
“The Recovery Act is working, but it’s going to continue to work. It’s not over. A lot’s going to happen this summer. And even after the summer, there’s more to come with the act.”
~ Joe Biden
“Above us our palace waits, the only one I’ve ever needed. Its walls are space, its floor is sky, its center everywhere. We rise; the shapes cluster around us in welcome, dissolving and forming again like fireflies in a summer evening.”
“My dad & my brother were more keen on football, but I used to play canvas-ball cricket while at school in Ranchi, & we would have cricket coaching camps in the summer vacations. That’s how I started.”
~ MS Dhoni
“I love feminine soft shades for summers – I like pastels and bright hues, too. I like summer dresses and tank tops; I think they never go out of style. As much as I’m happy with Western wear for red carpet and social dos, I also like Indian ethnic wear for special occasions.”
~ Yami Gautam
“As a child growing up in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, my connection to my Indian roots came from summer visits to New Delhi where my grandparents lived.”
~ Ro Khanna
“Shakespeare is renewed each time you see it or read it. I’ve seen ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ so many times, & each time it’s a little different, or a different line leaps out at me. It’s like re-reading a good book over & over, always noticing something you hadn’t seen the time before – & that’s rare.”
~ Michelle Dockery
“It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade.”
~ Charles Dickens
“He is only a commander, it is true, made last summer, and these are bad times for getting on, but he has not another fault that I know of.”
~ Jane Austen
“We need to be realistic. There is very little we can do now to stop the ice from disappearing from the North Pole in the summer. We probably cannot prevent the melting of the permafrost and the resulting release of methane. In addition, I fear that we may be too late to help the oceans maintain their ability to absorb carbon dioxide.”
~ Prince Charles
