Summer will come again...

As I was peddling through downtown in the lightest of drizzles today, I went by a favorite mural, concealed on an alley wall. It depicts a rebus-like advertisement from long ago, freshened up with new paint in an act of urban restoration. This summer I propped the then-as-yet-unnamed Hugo by the sign for an impromptu photo. It was a warm day--very enjoyable for strolling, sauntering, or peddling. I like to look at this picture from time to time in order to remind me that summer will come again, and that Salem's quiet charms can delight in unexpected ways.

Keep the faith!
