Summertime, like childhood, is ever-fleeting. It is here one minute and gone the next. Summer brings with it the promise of sun to be soaked in, adventures to be had and memories to be created. As novelist Charles Bowden wrote, “summertime is always the best of what might be.” Bowden’s words resonate powerfully in the endless cathedral of the mind, each time with increasing importance.
Summertime, unlike childhood, is ever-repeating. It is perpetual youth that returns each year with promise anew. Summer provides the opportunity to embrace your inner child and live it up. Perhaps the definition of living it up has changed but the end result is the same so live it up! Whether you slip ‘n slide or throw the ultimate garden party, just have fun and remember, summertime is child’s play!
