"Summer, after all, is a time when wonderful things can happen to quiet people.
For those few months, you're not required to be who everyone thinks you are,
and that cut-grass smell in the air and the chance to dive into the deep end of a pool
give you a courage you don't have the rest of the year.
You can be grateful and easy, with no eyes on you, and no past.
Summer just opens the door and lets you out."
