Summer is upon us in full swing - the days are the longest they will be all year, the average temperature is rising, the humidity continues to increase, as does the frequency of summer weddings, festivals, reunions, vacations, and get-togethers. In short, the outdoors have never been more appealing.
Most of these summer events are fun, social, fulfilling activities that folks around here have hard-earned after weathering yet another long winter. Leaping from weekend to weekend though, with each week seeming to be more booked than the last, is what concerns me. Letting these few golden months slip past seems like a waste to me, and to remedy it, I propose the following.
Slow summer down.
