Ahhhh….it’s almost here…that time of year when a day stretches long past dinner in a hazy, glow-y, resplendent-summer-month kind of way. There is something indulgent about it, especially being in California where the weather is already nice enough. Now that days are expanded (this being especially true in northern areas where a rouge of sunset can be seen at 10PM), it gives the impression that anything can be accomplished when you’re in the mood for adventure.
I will admit, my school days with fun-filled summer breaks are long, long gone. But the idea of having a carefree summer still lingers. During these months I’ll squeeze every ounce of fun out of a 2 or 3-day weekend. All activities are on the menu: road trips, camping outings, picnics at the beach and outdoor music festivals. There is a gypsy-wayfarer, bohemian vibe to these excursions. It feels good to be unplugged from the world for a moment or two, unavailable and unrestrained. The slower pace is attractive for many reasons (mostly that I can think without being interrupted by a continuous beep or buzz from my phone). Call me a nostalgic romantic but I just think it can be more fun this way…
Enjoy, enjoy, enjoy…!
