Summertime, When the Livin’ is Easy

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time. – John Lubbock

Oh, the summer night, Has a smile of light, And she sits on a sapphire throne. – Bryan Procter

Aaah, summer – that long anticipated stretch of lazy, lingering days, free of responsibility and rife with possibility. It’s a time to hunt for insects, master handstands, practice swimming strokes, conquer trees, explore nooks and crannies, and make new friends. – Darell Hammond

August brings into sharp focus and a furious boil everything I’ve been listening to in the late spring and summer. – Henry Rollins

I have lived pain, and my life can tell: I only deepen the wound of the world when I neglect to give thanks the heavy perfume of wild roses in early July and the song of crickets on summer humid nights and the rivers that run and the stars that rise and the rain that falls and all the good things that a good God gives. – Ann Voskamp

Summer has filled her veins with light and her heart is washed with noon. – C. Day Lewis

Each solstice is a domain of experience unto itself. At the Summer Solstice, all is green and growing, potential coming into being, the miracle of manifestation painted large on the canvas of awareness. – Gary Zukav
