  1. My Summer Reading Plan

    August for me is always when I start what I call my summer reading. It began with the fact that my family would always go on summer vacation in August and I would always choose specific books to read for the vacation. So regardless of what my August plans on, every August I select my summer reading list. Books that evoke either a sort of vacation-like feel, or books that just seem to embody summer.

  5. Night Life

    Love lights flash at night
    serenades begin at sunset
    subtle strife for life and death
