Summer “Time” All The Time

What is it about summer that makes it feel like there is more time in each day, and that time actually slows down?  Whether we’re working or lounging by the water, we seem to move slower, pause more, disconnect with the hurried pace of our daily life.

Strangely, I am in the throws of a huge project and continue to have the same, if not more, responsibilities as I did during the year.  And yet, I am calm, relaxed and very productive.  So what it is about the summer?  Is it simply the shift in weather or is there more to it? And can we hang on to this perception of time all year long?
