I'm convinced: Summer is equal parts sand, sun, and water. If you
don't get enough of one, you really can't claim to have "had a
summer." Time "had you," or it was "rain that did you in."

For me, having children got my priorities back in line. I had lost
out, had blurred my spring and early autumn for at least 5 years. It
wasn't hard in San Francisco. "Next year," I always thought, "I'll
catch up."

So let this post be a lesson. Get your priorities aligned. Enjoy
summer again. There's still time.
