I have just joined Revgalblogpals and having a great time listening to sisters talk about the readings for Sunday, the issues of being a pastor and just the normal being a woman in a still male dominated Church/world. Friday the blog called us to share what speaks of summer for me. It is a fun way to get in the "game" so to speak. And since this blog is called "For a Season" it seems appropriate to address the existential reality of where I live.
These are the questions I have been asked, What is:
1. Favorite summer food(s) and beverage(s)
My favorite summer foods include cold raw tomatoes, garlic, basil with balsamic vinegar over hot pasta; A gin or vodka and a lemon-lime frizzel drink that my local grocery sells; grilled anything; ICE CREAM; grilled trout (preferably which I have caught that day); strawberries from the area in which I live (not those tasteless golfballs from Watsonville). And I could go on forever. Food is one of my loves.
2. Song that "says" summer to you. (Need not be about summer explicitly.)
My favorite music is classical. Anything from Satie; Mozart; Handel's Water Music;
3. A childhood summer memory
Girl Scout Camp, my salvation!
4. An adult summer memory
Standing in the middle of a trout stream and catching a four lb trout in Montana.
5. Describe a wonderful summer day you'd like to have in the near future. (weather, location, activities) I long to have a week away to do nothing but read, look a the water, and fish.
