“Dog days”: the hottest period of the year (reckoned in antiquity from the heliacal rising of Sirius, the Dog Star). Also, a period of inactivity or sluggishness.
It’s hot and sultry here, but summer is only a week old. The weather doesn’t explain why this blog has entered a period of inactivity or sluggishness. Yet it has.
Yet I don’t want to let it die.
Therefore, I’m going to try something different: fewer words from me and more words from others whose thoughts deserve to be shared.
Coming soon: “Whereof One Can Speak (or Quote)”.
PS: The heliacal rising of a constellation [or star] is when it comes from under the rays of the sun, and begins to appear before daylight.
