Happy summer solstice!

In the Northern Hemisphere, sunlight lingers the longest today, enveloping you in a balm that’s deliciously warm. (In my mind at least.) How would you like to wade through the eddies of a lazy river?

I’ve always loved the way the water swirls and flows in O’Keeffe’s Chama River image, contrasted with the shades of red rock surrounding Abiquiu.
