“August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time.”

I'm beginning to see the light. I'm a believer. I'm alive. I'm into something good. I'm leaving on a jet plane. I'm every woman. I'm not afraid of anything. I'm on to you. I'm only happy when it rains. I'm walking on sunshine. I'm the only one. I'm too sexy. I'm still standing. I am a rock. I'm like a bird. I'm no angel. I am the walrus. I'm easy like Sunday morning. I'm just a singer in a rock & roll band. I'm a daughter, sister, mother. I'm gonna be starting something. I am unfinished on a lot of things. I am not as strong as you think. I'm not kidding. I'm a green eyed girl. I'm finding beauty in hidden places. I'm counting my lucky stars. I am a freak for amazing architecture. I am the girl next door. I am my mother's daughter. I am totally in love with my three girls. I am into you. I am what I am. I'm a girl living in the Windy City and loving it. I am that girl.

The Japanese city of Nara is renown for its deer. Thanks to their legendary history, they’re regarded as heavenly animals, messengers of the gods according to Shinto belief, and guardians of both the city and Japan itself. A population of over 1000 remarkably tame Sika Deer reside in Nara Park, where they roam freely and visitors may feed them special biscuits, and every summer they do something strange and awesome. They leave the park and swarm the streets, lounging together on the sidewalks and sometimes right in the road, looking like they haven’t got a care in the world and the middle of the road is the perfect place to be.
"…with the deer strolling out of the park to “enjoy the coolness of the street.” Given that the concrete sidewalk and asphalt road surface would ordinarily retain heat during the summertime, we’re guessing that the surrounding cityscape and topography creates either a cooling wind tunnel or an inviting patch of shade.
