It's summer, so it's still hot,
but not so stinkin' hot that you can't stand it.
At least not today.
And today is good.
The sunflower heads are getting big,
and I love to take these heads to school
-when they are dried- for my students to paint.
They make the perfect specimen
with their radial design and texture.
And they remind me of a favorite quote-
"Keep your face to the sun,
so you cannot see the shadow."
And we'll be having a county land use meeting soon,
in early August,
with restructuring the chicken permit fee
as a hot topic.
So I need to keep my face to the sun and remember
that St Joe still has my back.
