” Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.” —John Lubbock
August is here and it’s time to watch the clouds float across the sky. We’ll be taking a break here on the blog for the next few weeks. Fun fact: I’ve never really taken off such a block of time since I started Poppytalk over 16 years ago, but this year I’m taking my cue from John Lubbock and will perhaps lie on the grass listening to the murmur of water. In the meantime a few links for you:
