What did you do in the summertime as a child?
The Sunday Parade that comes with the paper had an article
called The Joys of Summer.

This is something I have also thought of.
My childhood included swinging on a rope swing,
riding my bike through the neighborhood,
playing ball down at the corner with the boys,
and singing loud and clear as I swung from the branches of trees.

Kids today are not allowed to enjoy their childhood.
They don't have time to daydream or study the clouds
or just be lazy.
"Sometimes doing nothing is doing something."
Even as adults we need times of rejuvenation.

Now go out and encourage the child in you and those around you
to take time for daydreams.
