"Summer gives us the essential free time we need to sustain our spirit, to be imaginative, to rejuvenate. What would life be without periods of relaxation and rebirth? Would there be poetry? Would we be free enough to create music and art? Would we have the time to ponder and muse?
What would life itself be like if there were no summer? One could only wonder, if one could...kids learn best in summer..."
