I’ve always loved sunlight splashing rivulets of golden warmth across my skin. In summertime, I’m bathing in happiness. By my good fortune, I can personally testify Southern sun shines brighter than most. Of course, growing up in (insert Southern state here), I also know all of this comes heat–and lots of it. One of my favorite summer pastimes, when unbearable heat drips down every crevice of your body, is to seek respite in the boughs of our ancient oak tree.
