August in Texas means back to school, start of football (and other athletic) practices and a general upswing in getting going.  The hottest time of the year – is that really the time to get revved up? Personally, I’d rather nap in a hammock by a cool river. -Ram

It’s hot.

I can smell the grass burning,

then crunching under my feet.

It’s August.

And even as rainless nature works

to live, our life is beginning anew.

It’s Texas.

Which creates a toughness,

strength to live through struggle.

It’s time.

To seek and drink cool water,

to be refreshed, to begin again.
