There’s a lot of latitude for freethinking during the Summer. A cross-country drive gives you time to sort things out and see beyond artificial boundaries. Camping beneath the stars inspires the big “what-if” questions you wouldn’t ordinarily consider in an air-conditioned bedroom. And a family reunion, spanning three generations, reminds you of the dream job you once aspired to as a sassy teenager.
Summer is the time to give yourself the latitude for carefree diversions. Enjoy alfresco meals in strappy heels. Celebrate a victory with ice cream scoops and big gold hoops. Fly across a zip-line in the warmth of golden sunshine. And match your attitude to the evening star’s magnitude.
