Happy Summertime!

Yes, I know, the image selected to accompany the editor’s letter is a bit psychedelic. The purpose is to visually express this remarkable feeling of unabashed happiness that comes over me during the summer months. Does this happen to you as well during the summertime? It reminds me of that fabulous quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald:

“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.”—The Great Gatsby

Summer is synonymous with “new starts”—everything is ripe, sun-kissed and moving at a leisurely, yet choreographed pace. The sound of birds, the smell of saltwater, lovebugs & fireflies, kids splashing around in pools, BBQs, family gatherings, laughter, summer travel…tan lines, poolside cocktails and a chance to catch up on reading. 

It’s my favorite time of the year, for I, like the famous Fitzgerald quote, am of the conviction that life begins over again in the summer. 

Best & Besos,

Francesca Cruz
