We're in the final stretch of August, panting all the way, and September still to come. Watching my potted herbs wilt, the chickens pant, the dog doze; looking for a shady spot of my own, and inspiration. I found this Malcolm Sutherland pen and ink animation, based on sketches of German tourists in Croatia. Just the absurdist ticket for a tired, delighted smile. The music is from Smithsonian Folkways Recordings, a record label which is an absolute Aladdin's cave of arcane folk, blues and world music.
May you find shade of your own, a well-made gin and tonic and your sense of humor firmly in place.
