Skywatch Friday: Live Hot

IMG 3679

My nephew Alex remarked to me last week, "I don't understand why people go somewhere hotter than home for vacation." He had done just that--left Connecticut for North Carolina. And I thought, "Because you don't get closer to heaven than North Topsail Beach, baby." I love the heat. I love the intensity of summer here. I love the beach and the relief and the slowing down and the slow waking and all that goes on. I say go passion for passion. God sends you a hot morning, then live it hot. Just go there and be the day you want to remember. And sweat without shame. Because it's all good.

  1. While I like the relaxed atmosphere of being at the beach I don't like the heat. This picture says it all. HOT.

    (and I'm gradually catching up...I've missed many of your inspiring posts)

    everyone is already jumping ahead and wishing away summer here, not me.

  8. While I am not enjoying our heat wave here, I am grateful it is not raining . We had way too much of that this spring. Hot days are there to remember when it is cold and we are wishing for more warmth. Your photo should be entitled HEAT! Beautiful!

  9. A very hot picture indeed! I am not a hot weather person, it just drains me. Today is clear and cool, bliss!!! I'm glad you are enjoying your heat though, I think you are in the majority friend.

    Hugs and thinking good thoughts for you, G

  10. That's a stunning shot Sandy. I'll admit that I don't care for the heat but at least with the ocean you can cool off.

  17. This sky is full of passion, the hot colours of sunny summer days. I do not mind the cool of our short winter. After three month it is time to let the sun again mingle with cool shadows. Sandy have a nice holiday.
