Summer…I have always treated it with disdain. Announcing that “this is what I have to go through to get to Autumn.” But a few years back, I noticed how long the lush-green lasted…and how much I liked it.
Then last year, I realized how much I loved the long-lighted days…and, how I was a little sad that the Summer Solstice meant those long days would now shorten. That is so weird. I used to have a personal celebration that the season had now peaked!
I imagine this Change is linked somehow to the exponential speed of time that aging brings. Whatever. I intend to relish the parts of Summer that I have come to love…to enjoy the water fun…and head into the air-conditioning as needed. Change is good.
