To most of us, summer begins at Memorial Day, but the more meteorologically inclined say it begins on (or about) June 21, the date of the Summer Solstice. Quibbling aside, the heat is on and if you’re a kid in Charleston, S.C., and you’re hot because you’ve been totally enjoying yourself at Waterfront Park, you get in the fountain.
Such joys belong to children. As we age we become reticent and hold ourselves back; true joyfulness and bliss become fragmented memories. Yet doesn’t the child within us long to run and play?
