(Well, this is embarrassing. For reasons too complicated to explain here, I’m not sure whether the following piece is mine or if it’s a compilation of some of my fellow writers. Logic dictates it’s mine, yet it doesn’t feel as familiar as it should. But since summer, in all its fullness, is officially just around the bend, I want to share. So, here goes—with sincere apologies if I’ve inadvertently plagiarized.)
Summer is the most voluptuous season.
Summer is like
. . . a rainbow, bright and colorful after a dark storm;
. . . . wide open spaces with no boundaries;
. . . imagination with endless possibility.
Summer is like like the blinding light of a camera flash, the scent of singed skin, the music of Beethoven; it’s like life at full maturity—gone is the perky innocence of youth as hints of age peek through its brilliance.
Summer is like lemonade—sunshiny bright, sweet and tangy, liquid in a sweating glass.
