That long anticipated stretch…..

“Aaah, summer –
that long anticipated stretch of
lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility.
It’s a time to hunt for insects, master handstands,
practice swimming strokes, conquer trees,
explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends. ”
–Darell Hammond

When Wonderful Things Can Happen…

“Summer, after all, is a time
when wonderful things can happen to quiet people.
For those few months,
you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are,
and that cut-grass smell in the air
and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool
give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year.
You can be grateful and easy,
with no eyes on you, and no past.
Summer just opens the door and lets you out.”

The Beauty That June Day…

“The beauty of that June day
was almost staggering.
After the wet spring,
everything that could turn green
had outdone itself in greenness
and everything
that could even dream of blooming
or blossoming
was in bloom and blossom.
The sunlight was a benediction.
The breezes were
so caressingly soft
and intimate on the skin
as to be embarrassing.”
