Summer Song

June 5, 2012

Continuing on from yesterdays post about my summer memoriesย here now a quote about summer…

(An excerpt from the poem Summer Song by Alice Anne Gordon)

I love summer even living in Florida. We have summer weather pretty much all year long.

But the summer season is still special to me.

No set schedule.

No drop off or pick up times, except for camp.

More carefree living.

Pool time.

Evening bike rides.

Gorgonzola salad with steak.

A hot, sandy beach.

Waves coming ashore.

Seagulls screeching over-head.

A pelican in flight.

    Why can’t summer last all year long? I am writing a post about this very thing on the Mothers Central Blog which will go up this Thursday. I feel the same way about summer – it isn’t all about the sunshine and warm weather (even more apparent in Ohio where I am from) but more about the time we allow ourselves to be less scheduled… Maybe summer can last all year if we let ourselves think about the business of our daily schedules more? Something to ponder for sure (this coming from a self-proclaimed busy On-the-Go Momma ๐Ÿ™‚ LOL)
