Summer has always created something vivid and alive in my imagination. It’s drive-in movies, driving with windows down, towels spread on the beach. It’s watermelon and ice cream and lazy days by the pool. It’s the sun not setting until late at night, riding bikes around neighborhoods and through woods, live music in the park.
My summers have never quite fit any of these descriptions, yet they persist in my mind, insistent that they are what defines this season.
Do particular images, sounds, or events come to your mind when you think of any season? What is summer to you?
