Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to people.
For those few months you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you
are. The fresh cut grass smell in the air & the chance to dive into
the deep end of a pool, gives you courage you didn’t think you had.
Summer just opens the door and lets you free. Go to a water theme park watch people climb great heights only to plummet full speed earthward into a pool of water. They yell and scream but when safely at the bottom they know they have conquered a monster and some fears have been erased.
