Something Resembling Sun

I've become besotted with a park here that I always knew existed but had never frequented, and it's joined the list of 'places to escape to'; it's quiet and away from the centre and during the week seems to often contain only a handful of other humans. Green spaces such as this one are so kind to those who simply want to lie on the grass with a book and temporarily forget what it means to exist. 

Meanwhile these oil-on-paper paintings by Kirsten Beets capture some of the feeling that people around here have been swimming in lately (we've had some sun).
