Sunday Quote and Photograph: Summer is Here for Sure Today

“Summer is here for sure today.
The sun is shining from a clear blue sky, and there is  no wind at all.
Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. for those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. you can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. summer just opens the door and lets you out.”
  flood of people

The “phrase” and the photograph are somewhat conflicting I know.  I just feel like sharing the anti-thesis of life. 

The phrase about summer is from a Norwegian blogger friend Roffee who talks about summer with much anticipation and yet in a peaceful mode, while the photo taken from a water park here in the Philippines looks chaotic.  Also, just even before I can finish this post, Roffe’s summer is gone.  The snow came too soon and he posted that winter is back.

While in Manila, Philippines, we have been suffering from the unforgiving summer heat for months now.  The temperature reaching as high as 36.6°C so far.  Everyone is wishing that summer be over soon and looking forward for the rain to come.  Aaaah… the world is really estrange

Now, ‘care to join another guessing game?

The photograph is taken in the same water park in the Philippines where the Justice League photo is taken.  If you notice, the people in this “pool” are looking in one direction - at the head front of the “pool”.  It is where the artificial waves are coming from and that’s what these people are waiting.  Aside from that, there’s a huge “monster” sitting where the artificial waves are coming.  What/who do you think is the monster? Clue - the monster is very famous.

Have fun guessing people! Happy summer!
