To everything there is a season. And this season, beloved friends, is summer. Even if you are not tethered to a school calendar, the relief of summer permeates every crevice of your being. After the rushing and pushing and striving and elbowing forward of spring, we melt into the lethargy of summer where everything goes into S-L-O-W-M-O … what was so pressing and urgent a few months ago becomes a little less so, as we begin to let go of what we no longer need to hold on to. So take the time to lay in your hammock, or sit on the park bench, or by the sea shore and let the summer rays transport you back to your essential self. Embrace this season of relaxation and renewal…all too soon it shall pass.
