A Cool Place, or, A Place to Cool

The heat is upon us! Add in humidity, maybe a bit of exertion and a person can be zapped of all energy quickly.

A place to get cool is a blessing, maybe a life saver, for sure a health saver.

Maybe air conditioning is not available. The shade of a tall and foliage heavy tree can do wonders to freshen and invigorate a human being . Turn on a box fan while spritzing a spray bottle of water, maybe lemon water. Whoooie Fresh!

Some of our communities are offering cooling stations: designated places with air conditioning and fresh water, and the opportunity for people to come in and cool down.

Along some ‘Walkers’ Through fares I’ve noticed some residents pay Kindness Forward with large insulated water jugs, the kind with a button-spout, and inexpensive paper cups at the ready for people who are parched and walking.

There is so much for which to be grateful: Liberty and the freedom to pursue happiness, kindnesses of strangers, gorgeous summer skies, birdsongs so happy and gay.
