We've been waiting for you...
Hair gets lighter.
Skin gets darker.
Water gets warmer.
Drinks get colder.
Music gets louder.
Nights get longer.
Life gets better.
In winter I get up at night
And dress by yellow candle-light.
In summer quite the other way
I have to go to bed by day.
~Robert Louis Stevenson

“Summer afternoon—summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.” ― Henry James
“Green was the silence, wet was the light, the month of June trembled like a butterfly.” ~ Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets
“Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people. for those few months, you’re not required to be who everyone thinks you are, and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool give you a courage you don’t have the rest of the year. you can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past. summer just opens the door and lets you out.” ~ Deb Caletti, Honey, Baby, Sweetheart
Because it’s summer and the memories are just waiting to happen. Unknown Deep summer is when laziness finds respectability. ~Sam Keen
Press close, bare-bosomed Night! Press close, magnetic, nourishing Night! Night of south winds! Night of the large, few stars! Still, nodding Night! Mad, naked, Summer Night! ~Walt Whitman
