Open it up! Yes, that is car/motor terminology and not exactly my thing but the point is to get inspired, raise the bar and let it roll.  Sweet Summertime is swiftly turning into what promises to be a luscious Fall season.  School, Fall leaves, apples, pumpkins and Halloween fun are fast approaching. While we linger in the dog days of Summer, soak up the sun and let it warm your skin, take that extra jump into deep cool water, stay out late enough to see the stars, to hear the bugs sing their late night symphony in the fields,  fall asleep in a hammock, drink that fruity drink, linger a little longer in the early evening alpine glow. Go ahead- feel it, live it, dance around in it for awhile.  Celebrate being here, now. Shine Brightly. Till next week-
