The lazy, sweet days of summer…. The summer is in full swing and I am thinking about things I can do to really enjoy the fruits of the season.  I want to do things that will bring joy and meaning to my summer days. I started to think back to my childhood… I went to camp, played outside, spent my days at the beach…  I was carefree and easy drinking bug juice and sailing the summer seas.

Do things happen for a reason, or is it all just random? And so the question of whether or not there is a prescribed path for each of us to follow, a designated sequence of events, is pondered.
