I took my summer Sperrys out for a walk yesterday, wishing for sunshine. I searched for colors, saw two things I had never seen before, got rained on a little, and shared an overhang with a woman and her gorgeous handbag. While I take a few days to sort photos from our recent travels, I thought I’d share some sights of a Shenyang summer.
I choose not to include one of the dismal sky, preferring to remember the beautiful spring we experienced this year. This year’s summer sky is one described best by Barbara Kingsolver in Flight Behavior. She wrote, “Whoever was in charge of weather had put a recall on blue and nailed up this mess of dirty white sky like a lousy drywall job.” Yes, just like that.
I will keep wishing for sunshine and searching for beautiful things. Enjoy.
