a joyful time when we learn lessons

without grand expectations or harsh consequences.”

time well-spent on the longest day.

“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.”

– f. scott fitzgerald – the great gatsby.
