Suuummmmeerrrr!!!! - part 1



When you're really young (as in elementary school and earlier), the summer is not really all that different from the rest of the year. It plods along with the same pace and reliability as its corollary season. If anything, it is tinged with a touch of sadness as you leave your friends who, as a function of your age, you really only see during the school year.

If there is sadness in the beginning of summer, it has, year after year, escaped me. For me the memories are all romanticized. Days stretching on forever, new energy that was nowhere to be found during winter, every color brighter than it has any right being and the freedom to pursue the adventures that school never allowed. Oh, and flip-flops.
