The Summer Playlist 2019

Today would have been my grandmother’s birthday. Each and every year, we have celebrated her just before my favorite turn of the seasons. When the sun gets bright yellow like egg yolk and the pavement is hot enough to fry. For those of you who don’t remember, my grandmother passed away last summer. It felt…
