No, I don't want the heat to linger forever and I wouldn't love it if I worked an 8-10 hour day in the fields and greenhouses or on a road crew somewhere. But for the first day of summer I wouldn't want it any other way. I pulled my beat-the-heat Driving Dress (a tropical looking sundress I bought at Reny's in Ellsworth, ME back in the summer of 1998 when my car had no AC and my boyfriend lived a four hour commute away in Cambridge, MA) out of the closet today and slipped it on, always shocked that it continues to fit after all these years. That long-ago boyfriend of mine, he lives with me now, and is bringing home dinner and cold drinks tonight. I can't think of a better way to celebrate the summer solstice.
