First of July

The first.
An assumption
that something more
will follow.
The optimist
views with anticipation.
The pessimist
with wary skepticism.
The wise
follow their better angels
and envision a July
of warm sand and gentle waves.
Convivial clambakes.
Blazing sunsets,
and, of course,


About Mary Jane

I am a retired English teacher. My husband, Frank, and I have lived on Cape Cod since 2000. I am a lifelong bread baker and writer and have been posting a blog on Falmouth Patch for the last few years. Savory Seasons has been largely devoted to recipes and food in general. I am hoping to expand my focus in this new blog.
