Summer nights means crowds of people lounging about on the lawn at Central park, listening to a local band play music.

Summer nights is standing at the food stands, smelling the blend of Indian, Chinese, Pizza, Tex Mex...looking at other people's plates as they passby, wondering what your mouth is hungry for this week.

Summer nights is watching the little kids playing in the park water fountain.  My favorite thing to do is to sit on a nearby bench (if I can find room) with my camera and just take pictures.

Summer nights is running into old friends, sitting on the lawn and getting caught up, while you munch your burrito or gnosh on your samosa and listen to the evening's music.

Summer nights is wandering through the stalls of the farmer's market, picking out fruit, vegetables, and fresh tortillas to get you through the rest of the week, until you return on Saturday.

I'm glad that I live in a small town which still values community gatherings and in a city which provides wonderful opportunities for people to get out of the house and come together to enjoy the pleasures of a summer night.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

That beautiful season the Summer!
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light;
and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellown
