“after luncheon the sun, conscious that it was saturday, would blaze an hour longer in the zenith,…” // m. proust
and lo – the first long weekend of the summer is upon us.
leading up to this blessed event, were the droves who came clomping along to the city’s biggest and best park, with heavy ankle boots paired with the shortest-short-shorts of denim; arriving with the most coveted of summer-time hauls – terroni pizza boxes, walking-stick size freezies, and shhhh, don’t tell the fuzz – icy beer.
and let me say it now, the winter was most obviously brutal – as the pasty knees and casper-white shoulders of our collective youth was a sad sight to behold. yet, if there was any doubt that summer has indeed been introduced to us yet once again, the first sunny, warm day in the city on the eve of a long weekend – is proof positive that hope lives in us all.
for me – it lies in the constant stream of a/c and the promise of endless slurpees. enjoy your holiday monday…
