August Ease

Something about late August makes me think of the south of France - fields of lavender blowing in the breeze, the hot summer sun baking the light-colored stone of the sidewalks and buildings, drinking wine in the afternoon at an outdoor cafe. The south of France is all about appreciating the little things, enjoy the simple pleasures of a relaxed life. August -- often hot and dry -- makes me feel particularly restful before I gear up for the busy goings on of the autumn. This weekend was spent studying and then cleaning our immense apartment that never seems to feel truly in order. Not exactly restful activities, but necessary in order for me to eventually feel at ease about life.
