Imagine the Magic - Summer Afternoon - Alicia Merrett
Henry James said that ‘summer afternoon’ are the two most beautiful words in the English language. A summer afternoon in the warm sunshine has a touch of magic. In the winter, shielding, we dream about it, we imagine the warmth of the sun wrapped around us, the beauty of the birds and butterflies, the radiant colours of the garden, the pleasure of sitting together with our friends and family.
We wait for the time of light and magic to flow back again as Earth revolves around the sun, and season follows season.We wish and hope for a time when everybody in the world lives in harmony, cares for nature and all living creatures, and looks after our Earth.
