Life would be pretty bleak without hope and imagination. Most of us are tired of the awful August heat wave. We pray for rain and await the cooler days of autumn. To help us tough it out today I suggest a bit of visual imagery.

Close your eyes for a moment and think cool thoughts. What comes to mind? Please share.

Here are the first five images that I conjured up:

Tossing football with my son on a crisp November afternoon.

Crossing the Swinging Bridge at Grandfather Mountain.

The 60 foot waterfall on Wilson Creek near Mortimer. (credit Elizabeth Gardner)

Key lime pie.

Cinnamon, Cloves. Apples.

What are your cool thoughts?
