To my regular readers ... I have been away for quite some time, as you have seen.  The year got off to a bit of a bumpy start, and then I needed to take some time off and clear my mind.  Wanted to be sure that as I move forward I do so with a clear vision of the path before me in mind, rather than just continuing to do what I was doing before out of assumption that I my course was still correct.  Refreshed, I am here for you today ready to rock and roll. On with Today's...

Day dream believer

Dear Summer, I must apologize to you, for I have failed to appreciate your beauty and sweet virtues in times past. Is there an explanation for my less than enthusiastic greeting when I saw you approaching, all too often, in the deserts of Southern California? Was the fault all mine, or were you part to blame?
