This Is Just to Say I have eaten the plums that were in the icebox

and which you were probably saving for breakfast Forgive me they were delicious so sweet and so cold by William Carlos Williams

There is something a bit devilish about August. It’s a tricky month because it somehow promises an endless summer. Perhaps it’s because we’ve all grown familiar with our sun-kissed hair, brisk morning walks along the beach, and daily astounding sunsets. Perhaps we’ve become too accustomed to biking to a nearby town for a scone at a favorite bakery or we don’t intend to order anything but iced drinks because . . . well, don’t all yummy elixirs taste so much better cold? This is the point in the summer when we are all too used to the little things that make life wonderful. And there is nothing about the month of August that even attempts to wake us from the reverie that is a pitch-perfect season. Since summer is a wonderfully fleeting thing, I hope together we can all agree to savor it to its very pit. Don’t save the perfect plums for breakfast but instead infuse your life with action. Don’t wait for the right moment, create the right moment. The summer is here. The summer is now. Enjoy it!
