“The summer night is like a perfection of thought.”
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
― F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
“Then followed that beautiful season… Summer….
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.”
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
How better to celebrate the freedoms we have then to be alive in each moment, with every molecule of our singular unique self brought to fruition. What a huge gift this freedom! To be able to live our highest truth without involvement from imposing powers not our own. Huge sacrifices have been made for these gifts.
Evolved and evolving, present, aware living are the fruits of this free life. Letting our being creatively express on the palette of the vibrant planet. Feeling deep gratitude. And yes! bringing to being all of our singular unique selves.
Yes, we are truly free.
Know it. Live it.
And may the creatures be wild and free!
Freedom lies in being bold.
Freedom – to walk free and own no superior.
Resolve and thou art free.
–Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
