A Tire Swing Story is a bite-sized "imagining" inspired by an object I discover while wandering. It could be a curbside trash gem or a message sprayed on a wall. A lost mitten, or an antique store find. Anything goes. I photograph the object and post them together, the story and its inspiration. There will be a new story every Monday and Wednesday. On Fridays, I'll discuss writing, life, love, and coffee. (In no particular order and maybe all at once.)

Casual Fridays: Summer Lovin'

Oh, Summer, you are leaving us soon, aren't you? Here are some things I will miss about you when you go: 

Garage sales
Flip flops
Farmer's markets and fresh fruits
People sitting on porches in the evenings 
Not thinking twice about walking home
Unruly wildflowers growing by the side of the road 
Afternoons on a patio having a cold one with friends  
Being able to head outside without having to first remember to grab: coat, hat, boots, mitts, scarf. (ugh!)   

What about you? What will you miss about summer when she's gone? 

Have a bittersweet weekend, story makers. See you back here on Monday. 


  1. sun tans
    swimming in fresh water lakes

  2. she's always gone too long every time she goes away......

  3. - carefree summer days
    - the mellow music moods
    - the pressure heat gets right before a summer storm
    - swimming under cool water and looking up
    - bare legs
