june/july Augusta, Aiken & Columbia

E scape

th e

o rd in a ry.

Wake up and smell the honeysuckle sunlight. Bite into a warm Saturday afternoon and let its nectar drip through your fingers. Listen for the taffeta skirts of June brides, the lazy bark of a dog-day afternoon, the silent pause between twilight and full night. Go barefoot on a hot sidewalk and feel it bake the ache out of your winter. Track the shadow journey of your plane over a lonely farm far below or watch the wind ruffle the long grass of a field. Make Coppertone your pheromone and climbing roses your “Stairway to Heaven.” Caress the sun-filled curves of a hometown tomato and wed it to smoky slices of bacon bedded on butter lettuce. I now pronounce you BLT. Let your eyes make love to aquamarine pools, whipped-cream clouds and bold gold sunflowers. Have a sensational summer!

“Play is a form of worship,” goes one of my favorite quotes. Summer is made for play, maybe because we relegate it to “vacation” time. When I’m playing with my camera or paints, time bends in a funny way. It both stops and flies. Hours can pass before I know it, but I’m also in a time-less space that feels a lot like being a child again. Before I was old enough to know I was “wasting” time, I spent whole days setting up a sacred pretend space on my grandmother’s bedroom floor and constructing elaborate lives for my paper dolls. That’s when I really knew how to worship. Follow Nikki’s blog at fridaville.com. 34  june/july
