Summer breeze makes me feel fineBlowing through the jasmine in my mind
The thermometer read 72 degrees as I got into the car to take Will to school. At just after 8 am.
And while the calendar still reads springtime, let's face it. Summer's here.
For me, the best part of summer = the scents of the outdoors that are so indicative of the season...
Blooming jasmine and gardenias, sweetly permeating the air with delicate fragrance
Charcoal grills preparing an evening’s feast
Fresh cut grass, soft and sharp signifying a job well done
Sunscreen with its immediate evoking of the tropical sun
Chlorine, signifying cool respite from the day’s heat
Fresh peaches, dripping with lush juice and sultry deliciousness
Cold beer, quenching thirst with a kick
Citronella candles, filling the atmosphere with protection and light
Sweat earned from an endorphin-laced workout, earthy and salty and
It’s summertime (almost)... and the living is indeed easy. Or it soon will be.
