Know what's good about this summer? The bougainvilleas! How they are so showy and gregarious, you pass by a street and there they are: orange, pink, red, purple and white, drooping overhead as if waiting to shower themselves on you, or sing to you. It almost seems like they can amplify their colors if you ask them to. What I like about this summer is the anticipation of rain, then when it comes, we wish for dryness. We wish for what we don't have. What I like about this summer is that it teaches me to appreciate what is there.
