editor's note

Everything seems more intense in the summer, wouldn’t you agree? The sharply cast shadows, the brightness of stars on a clear night, the fierce colors of tanks and shorts. Intensity, though, can often mean a lack of grace. The world seems unapologetic for its merciless heat and long-drawn days. Patience grows thin for fall’s cool relief.

I’m learning that even though I’m no longer working on a school-focused schedule, my whole year still revolves silently around the release of summer. Sure, I’ve still gotta clock nine to five in July just like I did in April, but the space around me feels freer. The sun lingers near an extra few hours as the kids on the street play basketball till they’re dizzy. 

I find myself wondering what to do with the little bit of space summer offers that winter withholds. Travel? Read? Find a hobby? Sure, these goals may energize me mid-May, but by early June, I’ve given up and find myself lucky just to rest in the shade of my carport for a while, slow to commit to an errand or a letter or a recipe. . . . Read more in the magazine.
