summer

Letter from the Editor: June 2020

I’m not a big fan of summer weather in Ohio. It’s muggy, sweaty and many times, it feels like you’re wading through a swimming pool when leaving the air-conditioned office on a humid day. As someone who has naturally frizzy hair—think Monica from “Friends” when she visits Barbados—I’m not big on dealing with humidity. I prefer to spend my time indoors when the weather gets that torturous.

During the summer when I was a kid, my yard served as the neighborhood gathering place. Kickball, softball, volleyball, dodgeball—you name it, we played it. I spent all my waking hours outside soaking up the sun. A dip in the pool, some basketball in the driveway, twirling baton in the yard, riding bikes down the road, catching fireflies at night. I had no time to waste inside.
