Explore the rich vibrancy of summer and reflect on how nature teaches us to value time in this lush collection of reflections by our greatest writers.
"Summer has gone by so fast," we often saythe only season for which we say that. Summer does seem to make us keenly aware of time. In our vacations, we step out of time. Watching our gardens, we see the progress of time. Seeing the geese come honking back, we are aware of the passing of time. In essays, poems, and meditations organized around themes of time and our responses to it, twenty-five writers consider summer and its spiritual meanings.
