Summer Latitude

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.
