#2,801 Light in August.
by Erin Napier
The shadows are getting longer and the humidity was only 51%, despite the heat index hitting 102. It’s enough to give us hope the respite is coming.
"In August in Mississippi there’s a few days somewhere about the middle of the month when suddenly there’s a foretaste of fall, it’s cool, there’s a lambence, a soft, a luminous quality to the light, as though it came not from just today but from back in the old classic times. It might have fauns and satyrs and the gods and – from Greece, from Olympus in it somewhere. It lasts just for a day or two, then it’s gone." – Faulkner #HGTVHomeTownS2
