As soon as daylight savings rolls around, Summer is suddenly afoot.
The lethargy and restlessness that plagued me towards the end of last week has lifted and the world is suddenly bright again. I'm looking forward to beachy afernoons and campfires at night. To getting my hands dirty in the garden all day and then diving into cold pool waters at twilight. To lying in the hammock while the squeak of the trampoline fills my ears. To plunging my feet into icy salt water.
Long drinks in the short of the day.
Cicada drones drifting on hot winds.
Days where nothing stirs, not even us.
The smell of earth when longed-for rain finally arrives.
Hello Summer. Hello.
