Do you have your mental summer list all made out? The one highlighted by less frenetic days, a few long weekend trips and the occasional glass of lemonade? ‘Stay-cations’ have been especially popular lately and the Brazos Valley is ripe with summer fun stops. From Shakespeare at Winedale to an array of outdoor music venues, you can while away the summer days and nights and get better acquainted with your regional neighborhood.
To really connect with your inner summer slacker, I recommend a list things not to do this summer, including industrious cleaning projects or substantive self-improvement efforts. After all, summer is for swatting stray bugs, listening to the songs of cicadas and sharing a backyard with friends and neighbors. Any serious striving can wait for September.
So settle down with this issue of INSITE and get going on your anti-list … plotting all the literary “junk food” you want to check out from the library and all the places you’ve always meant to go around the area but just have never gotten around to visiting. After all, summer only comes once a year. – Angelique Gammon
