Remember when summer was more than just a season? It was an era that stretched on forever. It was being barefoot and playing in the dirt. It was riding a bike, fingers sticky from a popsicle. It was dodging June bugs, catching lightning bugs, and listening to a chorus of crickets. It was jumping into the pool during the day and sleeping with the windows open at night.
For adults, summer means going to work. Again. (Only hotter.)
This month, we’re recapturing that old summer magic. We’re making the season count, going outside a little more and picking up our phones a little less. Looking at the faces of friends, taking notice of the nighttime sky.
Try it. The kid in you will be grateful.
