I may be accused of writing a spurious blog about the summer just so that I can post this picture of Rafa that a kind-hearted work contact sent me yesterday.
I deny this accusation. Summer is a very interesting topic and should be written about often, and at great length.
As Henry James said: “Summer afternoon – summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”
If you live in Abu Dhabi, then this Samuel Taylor Coleridge quote is perhaps more apt: “Summer has set in with its usual severity.”
Unless of course you happen to be on a beach with Rafa….
