In a long-standing tradition, I have each July reprised on this site an essay I wrote several years ago about summertime at our lake house in Pentwater, Michigan. Actually, the tradition was that I re-posted the article over the July 4th weekend. This year, I was completely preoccupied during the July 4th holiday; I was so busy enjoying the experience of being in Pentwater that I completely forgot to re-post the article. However, since we are still in the month of July, it is not too late, and the essay’s themes remain as timely as ever. And so in a slightly belated completion of my annual ritual, I am now posting a link to the essay about Time and Summer – the essay can be found here. I hope everyone has a great summer and that each one of you is able to take some time to savor July while it lasts.
