Open one eye. The sun streams through the curtains. And, sigh of contentment, it’s another lazy, hazy day of summer. Pop on a kaftan or a cool Hawaiian shirt and pack the picnic hamper. Seek out water – ocean, river, lake or lido – and let your cares slip away. Sip fresh lemonade or bright juices. Soon it will be time for an afternoon nap or to seek shade, time to learn the lingo or read a poem. Shall we come back every year? Enjoying The Simple Things, it’s what summer is for.
