Summer Soltice

If you live in the Northern Hemisphere, summer officially began at 7:59 EDT on Friday, June 20th. "Summertime and the livin' easy." Sublime.

What's not to love about summer? What reminds you of summer when the days are longer; stretching out into warm and breezy; welcoming, summer evenings?

The warm, summer weather conjures up thoughts of getting naked (shocker) and a little crazy with a friend, or friends, while sipping on a refreshing glass of white wine; filled with tastes like, nectarines, peaches, honeysuckle, lavender and ocean breezes. I can drink a really cold beer too in the summer, or any time for that matter, but there's something much more appealing and erotic about the description of a chilled glass of white wine that one drinks on a warm, summer day or evening.

There's wine and then there's song -

There's certain types of music that remind me of summer too. I won't bore you with a long, diatribe of Neve's favorite summer songs, but there are some songs that I hear and suddenly I'm naked again; laying on my back, looking up at the sky and creating characters out of big, puffy clouds.

So, for me, the common Summer Soltice denominator is being naked; drinking something, cool, and wet, while music is being played.

Aaaaah. Hello summertime. Glad to see you again.
