August Rain

It’s August already!
Soon the rains would be gone
Autumn would creep in
And in no time
We’ll be getting ready for the new year!

Well, time seems to have slowed down
In these pictures at least
Pictures from Srilanka’s Galle House & the iconic Lunuganga
Beautifully captured by photographer Richard Powers

 And before I leave you
I have to pause,
And Thank You
 All you fabulous people who have been writing in
And are designing An Indian Summer’s identity for me
What would I do
Just what would I do without you?
