School is almost done and summer is calling. Everything tells me it's time-to sleep in, go barefoot, pick berries, smell the ocean and the redwoods and pines. The crickets seem closer. My view has become filled with green vines dripping with baby grapes. Children laugh and run past sunset. Mulberry tarts and plum cake will soon grace the table. Time for evening walks when the temperatures cool to visit the orchards full of fermenting fruits. No homework, no have to's, just free flowing life.
Summer, yes... it is nearly here.
