Thematic Photographic 298 - Summer

And in the morning, I'm making waffles
London, ON
June 2014
I'm a lucky guy for a whole lot of reasons. When the universe deemed me worthy of existing, I was given an amazing gift - I can write - which lets me sit on my duff in a home office (or on the deck, or on a beach, or...) and string words together. The universe then ensured I crossed paths with a remarkable girl (well, she's a woman now, but she was 16 when we met) who saw through my quirkiness and stuck with me. We then had three delightfully bright and unique kids who are already putting their own dings into the universe.

It all seems to coalesce on mornings like this when she makes waffles and we're all magnetically drawn to our seats around the kitchen table. The sound and the feel of these mornings is, in a word, delightful. As you can see, I'm manic about prepping my waffles, because the little squares almost seem to invite you to indulge in a little fun. Because what's the point if you can't have a little fun with incredible food made by an incredible woman?

Yes, it's just a waffle stuffed with a bunch of blueberries. But to me it's so much more.

Your turn: I'm thrilled to bring Thematic back after a bit of a break. Thanks to you all - especially Karen Sather - for your encouragement and support. For the coming week, I want us all to focus on summer, because I'm just enough of an optimist to believe that the arrival of a new season gives us all an extra reason to smile. If you're new to Thematic, read this. If you've done this before, you know what to do. So have at it and have fun. And please accept my thanks for keeping Thematic on your radar.

We have summer all thru the year. So an orchid.
