This portrait could almost be me yesterday afternoon ~ if you replace the hammock with one of those new-fangled anti-gravity chairs, the long black dress with capri’s and a tank top, the border collie with a brown and white shih tzu, and the newspaper with my Sony e-reader. The 21st century version of James Jaques Tissot’s 1879 oil painting. <smiles>
What could be more relaxing on a summer afternoon than lying under a shady tree with one’s faithful canine companion for company and the printed word for entertainment? I can think of few things I enjoy more. A simple pleasure, surely, but one rare enough in this modern world that to partake of it is a treat.
What simple pleasures are you enjoying this summer?
