Sultry is the feeling that prevails in the season of the sun- the sweltering days and the balmy nights; that feeling of taking that first bite of a sweet peach, the juice dripping down your lips.  It is a time of unabashed flirtation- skin sun-kissed and free in vibrant colors- smiles are easy, as is the laughter behind playful exchanges of compliments and queries. Sultry is the creaking of a porch swing as an older couple settles into a gentle rock, holding hands and appreciating the violet sky as the sun goes down. It is a time of renewal, of harvest, and abundance… it is indeed, my favorite time of year: Sultry Summer.
