Summertime, and the livin’ is easy. ~Heyward & Gershwin
The year is 1/2 over as is the glorious summer in the Midwest. Yes, it can be sweltering. But life is abundant – birds, flowers, trees, green of all shades, flowers in full light spectrum dazzling the eyes. People are also in full bloom smiles enjoying the respite from Winter.
The lakefront in blue glory admired by many in relaxation and/or exercise. For me the two are combined in long bike rides interspersed with rests so I can admire the scenery and watch people. It is the perfect place to live for this season of my life. I wouldn’t mind if it was a city in another part of the world where everyday brings new experiences on it’s wings. Perhaps, I need to look more deeply at my surroundings and see the new experiences I have glossed over.
