Summer is about fire, play, spirit, and water.  

It is youthfulness and aliveness.

Summer is heat, sound, passion, and sun.

It is insects, birds, spiders, slithering and croaking things.

It's web, pockets of light on the forest floor... and shadows.

It's yellow flowers, bumble bees, wasps, and pollen.

Summer is a symphony of hums, buzzes, clucks, tweets, and chips.

It's morning sounds and evening sounds - distinctly different.

It's cicadas, katydids, and whippoorwills.

Summer is buds on flowers and baby birds.

It's sweltering humidity and relief brought by a powerful thunderstorm.

Summer is stories shared over fresh vegetables and memories of grandmothers...

And sweet iced tea...

Summer is about living...
