In some parts of the world of Entropy contributors, summer is coming to an end, in some parts it is still winter, and here in Los Angeles, summer the season has only just begun, but summer the feeling is ending. This week we asked Entropy contributors to share photos and memories of what they did this summer.
I just got back from Norway and Scotland with my sister. In Norway, we went to our family’s ancestral farm for the first time and met relatives. In Scotland, we went to fiddling camp on the Isle of Skye, then spent some time in Durness, The Cairngorms, and Edinburgh.
Here is my happiest moment this summer. This was in La Jolla, while my husband was in San Diego for work. We sat like this for a long time, waiting for the waves to come, ecstatic when they did, over and over.
A writing retreat at Joshua Tree.
Hung out with some goats in Wisconsin in my PJs… We were at an AirBnB. GOATS ARE AMAZING.
I never made it to water but I looked at the sky a few times. My summer began with foaling, some rye, then first cut hay, wheat, second cut hay, and at last the tomatoes. So red, if you kiss them, they kiss you right back. Next month I might try to visit Gettysburg. It’s only 30 miles but they have old cannon you can walk around I guess.
It’s cold in Melbourne.

A campsite to read and write in Cloudcroft, New Mexico.
I went to a forth of July Beach house party in Seal Beach with my now ex-boyfriend. It was the last good time we had together. This is probably the only time I will go to the beach this summer as now that he is out of my life I am concentrating on getting some work done.
We swam in Lake Michigan; built sand sculptures!
My wife and I went to the Day of the Corgis on the beach in Long Beach recently. Here is a hot dog.
I stayed in a beach house for a week. Check out this view from the back porch!
Been living abroad in Soho, London, gathering up content for that third novel.
I drank Scotch in a cemetery while riding around in a Masersti. #weirdsummer
I got really excited about planet stamps.
