A fun time in the summer

When I was young, the best time to be alive was the summer. Running out through those doors at school, knowing there was a long stretch before you had to go back… one of the best feelings of youth.

June was when the fireflies came out at night, their bodies flickering and blinking in the dark. July was marked by trips to the pool and celebrating the season. August was when the party wound down, with back-to-school sales and last minute trips before September came and the lights in our eyes dimmed, as we marched back through those doors.

I miss the feeling of those days. Now there are fewer fireflies in June, July is hot as ever with less to celebrate, and August is, well, another month. Age has a way of dimming the present while making the past seem so much brighter…

I hope most of you are enjoying the summer as best you can. Enjoy the summer. Enjoy youth, if you are young. And never, never let that light in your eyes dim.

Till next time…
