"Summertime and the living is easy..."

I am a child of the 70's. I grew up dancing with my feet planted firmly on my older sister's while she danced to Alice Cooper and the Eagles. I remember my parents blasting Bob Seger's "Night Moves" and Rod Stuart's "Every Picture Tells a Story" and I distinctly remember the voice of Janis Joplin. Especially her cover of the Gershwin "Summertime."

"Summertime, /And the livin' is easy /Fish are jumpin'/And the cotton is high. /
Your daddy's rich / And your mamma's good lookin' / So hush little baby / Don't you cry. / One of these mornings / You're going to rise up singing / Then you'll spread your wings /And you'll take to the sky...

Ah, summertime.

Over the last week, I've been thinking of this song a lot. Here are some images from the last week that hopefully capture summertime.

Until next time...enjoy the summertime!
