After a spate of cold and rainy days, it seems New England summer has finally arrived. We stoic denizens of the upper right-hand corner of North America do not take this fact lightly, although we do have it easier than our Canadian continent-mates. It is too cold yet for any but a mad few to swim in the ocean, although we could almost imagine sitting on the sand and feeling its warmth in our winter-chilled bones. But it still is June, so these are merely daydreams. For now we are content to stand with the sun on our shoulders and feel winter’s burdens lift. And only wake to pull the comforter up to cover ourselves somewhere in the middle of the night.
