Heart of Summer

Swimming pools are open, families are on vacation trips, kids are at camps, rivers are clear waiting for skilled fishermen, lakes and oceans sparkle beckoning boaters, libraries are cool waiting for summertime readers, lemonade stands appear staffed by young entrepreneurs, sounds of firecrackers pop up in the distance, twilight lingers filled with sounds of play, the days are long and warm. When you are young and out of school summer is a long book full of possibilities - now it's a footnote to days, weeks and months filled with other things.
