thoughts of the end of summer, and this will be the last of my summer favorites that i share with you here on fridays. so today, i thought i’d celebrate the amazing photos that come out of this season, and the huge amount of inspiration they provide to me.
and before i sign off for the weekend, i have to offer a very hearty “thank you” to everyone. i had no idea how ‘wellfleet’ would be received, but i should’ve known that you all would be more than supportive. i’m thrilled about the idea of putting together a couple of books, and there’s no proper way to express my gratitude for the nice comments you left, the emails you sent, the mentions on your blogs, and the copies you’ve purchased. just … wow. to say that i had a smile on my face all day yesterday would be an understatement. although i’m not the best at responding to the thoughtful and kind comments that are left here each day, i want you to know that i read and truly appreciate them all. seriously. i am so glad to be a part of this online community.
i read a quote this morning that seemed to fit the situation perfectly:
“one ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words.” – goethe
how true that is. i hope this last august weekend is a memorable one for you. cheers!
