Palms and Hammocks



August is the best month of summer

June is hectic, what with all those weddings and graduations. July is loud — firecrackers, family reunions — and the humidity is stifling.

 

But August, Ahh, August! For some it is the most perfect month of the summer.  It's high season for  fruits and veggies. Many parts of the country it is a nice break from the thick, sweltering days of July and the rainy days of June. Fewer rainy days means more sunshine, which gives us a good dose of Vitamin D — builder of strong bones and teeth and fabulous hair. Not to mention Good Moods.

 

It is as if by Natures decree,  that We are required to “take it easy” (National Lazy Day is Aug. 10. National Relaxation Day is Aug. 15.)  Go ahead and enjoy a box of  Crayon’s or colored pencils (check out the new adult coloring books).

 

Athletes will be going for their personal best. You can make a splash in the pool and be the star, speaking of Stars. August in the sky are Stars galore as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of man’s walk on the moon

For that reason, check on programs from PBS and tips from NASA on what’s available and when. Or for other fun ideas keep reading.

 It’s July, Summer is now in full swing, outside activities and celebrations are great, the sun is high in the sky for longer days and for warm nighttime fun.

Some awesome choices for you to engage in, some even a bit outrageousness, can be found in our daily calendar of events for July, dazzle yourself with situations, and things to enhance your social standing, or if nothing else, to give you great conversation material.

After Perusing the July calendar page below. Check out Current or Pass Blogs pages by navigating the tabs at the top of each page. Find Items to reset your perspective or just enjoy the pictures.

The Urge for Adventure June 2018

Hey all!

Welcome to another monthly selection of activity nuggets, the month of June features exploration and sensations that can expand your personal boundaries. You couch potatoes can strategize for a personal best… that means off the couch.

The Chair Photo by Michael Zonta

The Chair Photo by Michael Zonta

In your plan, you want to integrate elements of fun. Try activities that are not your norm.  This is about summer and you, examining and unleashing boundaries that might be holding you back from your success. It is a roundabout way of getting to feelings, having gratification in your authenticity, and in self-ownership as the architect of your habits rather than the victim of them.  

Thus, we provide wacky, yet useful information that not only is to Motivate you (that’s what gets you started) but that also helps form Habits (that keeps you going.}

I’ve compiled an assortment of monthly to daily activities that are for laughs, and or intrigue, and or to get you into action. So Try one you might like it.

HEY GUYS,

May Is Here, (and finally so is Spring for many of you on the East Coast of the U.S.),  So plan to use these longer days or nights. Start by giving yourself permission to express yourself in ways that activates your vitality in new ways. Take opportunities to reinvigorate yourself, maybe, even do something outrageous. Something To Move You Out Of Your Comfort Zone. Then, at least, You have given Yourself some great conversation starters for that next bull session or cocktail gathering. To move you in the right direction, below are some events you could look in to or be part of,

  Let me know what you think.

“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium."― Martha Graham.

APRIL Week LONG ACTIVES

The fresco, The Resurrection, was painted by the Renaissance master Pinturicchio in 1494 — just two years after Christopher Columbus first set foot in what came to be called the New World.  Antonio Paolucci, director of the Vatican Museums, told the Vatican daily L’Osservatore Romano that after the soot and grime were removed, in the background, just above the open coffin from where Christ has risen, “we see nude men, decorated with feathered headdresses who appear to be dancing.” One of them seems to sport a Mohican cut
