In recognition of the Independence Day holiday in the U.S., and in what is now an annual tradition, I reprise my 2012 essay about Time and Summer, which can be found here. In the midst of the very strange time in which we are all now living, life’s timeless lessons somehow seem more important than ever. Thank you to all of my loyal readers. I hope that all of you and your families are able to enjoy a healthy and safe Fourth of July holiday.
