When you're a kid, summer is a magical time--no school, no responsibilities, just fun all day long and late into the daylight savings time night. For adults, it's not quite the same, because deadlines still loom, and bills still have to be paid. Yet, there's something wonderful about the sun being out til 8 or 9, and the weather being warm no matter what your age or situation. And here in New York, summer is really special, because the streets empty out as people stream toward the Hamptons. You can always get a reservation at the restaurant you want, and there are no lines at the movies. Best of all, there are those concerts in the park, and the free Shakespeare performances as well.
I'll be writing plenty this summer--with three series there's always something to be done--and I I have my new rocom PUPPY LOVE, which I really adore, coming out in August. But you can bet I'll be playing plenty too. It's summer after all!
On a more serious note, this memorial day I hope we'll all take a minute to think about the fallen soldiers and their families., and thank them for their sacrifice. In their honor, let's bring our troops safely home now!
to quote one of my personal heroes, John Lennon,
WAR IS OVER, IF YOU WANT IT.
