Dear friends,

The hummingbirds are history. 

Karin tends her feeders all summer and the porch thrums continuously. And then one day in September, they vanish. 

The wild asters are finally blooming: the last flower of summer. 

And the field of golden rod is alive with honeybees. You walk a mown path and the whole world hums in a dream of honey.

Geese have been flying overhead. Crows gather along the edges and seem to enjoy their ability to cuss out everything.

Summer is slipping away.

And we too, yet again, have packed our bags full of songs and love notes to the imperfect world, and we are setting out to find – you?

Please do join us if you can for a little “heartbreak and laughter, the joy and the tears, the scary beauty of what’s right here…”

Maybe we need each other more than ever.

Peace like a river, love like an ocean,

Linford and Karin of Over the Rhine
