Poem for Wednesday and Canal in Summer

I Hide Myself Within My Flower
By Emily Dickinson

I hide myself within my flower,
That wearing on your breast,
You, unsuspecting, wear me too --
And angels know the rest.

I hide myself within my flower,
That, fading from your vase,
You, unsuspecting, feel for me
Almost a loneliness.


Another quickie because Adam got home around midnight and is telling us about his day and we are watching the London fire in horror.

I took a walk in the neighborhood just as the Pokemon Solstice event started, though I didn't realize it at the time, so I caught enough Cyndaquils to evolve a Typhlosion, whoo! I also took a trip to CVS for some necessities and did a bunch of chores. We had leftover Indian food for dinner and watched Genius, which is both brilliant and distressing. Here are some animal photos from the C&O Canal last week:
