In the middle of a long, cold, snowy winter, there’s nothing like focusing on a few summer catch phrases to put you in mind of warming, sunnier days ahead.
Golfer James Dent knows all about warm, sunny days, especially in his profession. But that doesn’t mean he wasn’t able to sum up what, to him, is a perfect summer day:
“A perfect summer day is when the sun is shining, the breeze is blowing, the birds are singing, and the lawn mower is broken."
Novelist Albert Camus put it more poetically:
“In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.”
Writers and artists especially sigh for what summer means, and they sum it up in summer catch phrases.
“There shall be eternal summer in the grateful heart.” - Celia Thaxter
“The summer night is like a perfection of thought.” - Wallace Stevens
Those are great ways to keep those long summer days alive through the cold, dark winter!
