Missing Summer

"January, month of empty pockets! Let us endure this evil month, 
anxious as a theatrical producer's forehead."
~ Colette

Yep, I am a little tired of winter.

It happens about this time every year…

You know, when January seems to sneak in about 14 extra days.

Maybe you've noticed it, too.

But fear not!

Here at The Elbow, we are prepared.

We have our list

that enchanting and  inviting inventory of summers gone by.

So spend a little time in a summer state of mind today.

Write stories of sweet tea and beaches…

Poems of picking berries and catching fireflies…

Or shut down that laptop entirely, and simply paint something you miss.

PROMPT: Summer will get here eventually! Until then, you know what to do.

And for those of you in the Pacific Northwest – Let this serve as a friendly reminder that you only have 6 months left for tracking down those sunglasses.


  1. I love the sunflower. Hey. You can always come visit me in Arizona .^_^ Loads of sunshine (even if it is only 12 degrees this morning.)

    1. I would LOVE to see your new digs in AZ! Ah, sunshine... and nothing says WAKE UP like 12 degrees!

  2. Hey that Angelina has good taste or should I say good sight, that is one AWESOME sunflower.
