The Summer Days

Then followed that beautiful season… Summer….
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Summer Days

Human beings are made up mostly of water, in roughly the same percentage as water is to the surface of the earth. Our tissues and membranes, our brains and hearts, our sweat and tears—all reflect the same recipe for life, in which efficient use is made of those ingredients available on the surface of the earth.

We are 23 percent carbon, 2.6 percent nitrogen, 1.4 percent calcium, 1.1 percent phosphorous, with tiny amounts of roughly three dozen other elements.
But above all we are oxygen (61 percent) and hydrogen (10 percent), fused together in the unique molecular combination known as water, which makes up 71 percent of the human body.

    • You are welcome, Ash. One can always recognize the sounds of children having fun 🙂

    • Tak for det, Drake 🙂
      Modlyset skabte fantastiske silhuetter, og vandet gnistrede. Fantastisk dag på Amager Fælled 🙂
      Engang var det mere dystert. Den sidste person, hvor dødsstraffen blev eksekveret, var i 1950 på Amager Fælled.

    • Thank you! Yes it is an imperative message. Odd how it already feels so very long time ago.
      All the best,
      Hanna
