“A good night sleep, or a ten minute bawl, or a pint of chocolate ice cream, or all three together, is good medicine.”
― Ray Bradbury, Dandelion Wine
I'm savoring my way through Dandelion Wine this summer, so I am heady with the wistful, spicy sentimentality of Ray Bradbury. There are certain stories for certain seasons, you know, and Dandelion Wine is one of the most perfect spun summer tales. It's a kid's story about town and family and tradition and change, and easily makes you think about your own town and family and tradition and change.
We bought a bike rack and it took us to a new place in our vicinity that we'd never seen: the bike trails around Lake MacBride.
We're growing eggplants, new front teeth, and a little less fond of one another with each passing day.
We're sampling a lot of ice cream in the high summer heat: strawberry, chocolate, mint, and dirt cup (vanilla with crushed oreos and gummy worms).
We're getting a little older this summer, but we're still having fun and we're still just as cute.
