One of my favorite songs this (or any!) time of year – is Will Smith/DJ Jazzy Jeff’s Summertime. Nearly two decades old, it still has a timeless, classic vibe and sweet groove that embodies the flava of the season.
With the solstice now behind us, summer has officially started. We’re in the midst of many endings and beginnings – school finishes, camp commences; text books begone, trashy novels devoured; serious films scaled back, popcorn vampire explosion movies released in full force; beach and barbeque gatherings abound. For a couple of months we allow ourselves to take more time than usual to enjoy outdoor, fun, social and recreational activities without much of the guilt/low priority often assigned to them the rest of the year.
We’re also halfway through 2010 – a good time to check in with yourself and see if you need to rev up your engines, shift gears or just cruise along with your roof down taking in the scenery listening to some fly tunes. For many you can simply let all the hard work you put in the first six months of the year marinate a bit more before putting it on the grill …
But if you’re far away from where you set out to be in January, feeling restless instead of relaxed, or not even sure what your focus should be with these long hot days ahead, give me a buzz. I’m here to help you make the most of your energy and time… so just sit back and unwind.
