I couldn't resist sharing this photo I just took. Today we hit record temps of 95 degrees (and no one has air conditioning in the Northwest because normal summer temps are 75)! So despite my sweltering, when I took my pooch out I had to revel for a few moments in the beauty of this sunset. Truly an icon for me.
If you are in Seattle or another heat-wave stricken place, what do you do to stay cool? I find my creative energy positively wilts in this weather (except, I guess, for photography!).
