"All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on." Henry Ellis
I love that there are still a few dandelions in full bloom this time of year. I shot this a few minutes ago. During June every year, my whole yard is sprinkled with yellow.
Since the first part of August, I've been saying it "feels like fall" here in the mountains. (The lower elevations are still hot.) But now that it's nearly mid-September, I know that it won't feel like summer again until next year.
The clouds have moved in and colored the morning blue sky all gray and covered up the sun. It's cold enough to need a jacket. Sigh.... I'm not at all ready for the seasons to change. The first snow could come any day....

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.
"The moment one gives close attention to anything,
even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
