This fourth volume shares ideas for creating summer traditions and travels, whether that means planning months in advance, or taking off for a last-minute weekend in the sun or road trip. The stories celebrate the long-standing traditions we cherish while also reminding ourselves to start a few of our own.
The smell of cut grass and the flicker of fireflies. Dripping sno-cones and the rotation of funny tan lines. Summer is chalked full of sensory experiences that with the sun's rays rupture to the surface and ask us to revisit, renew, or reinvent. The photos and stories in volume four focus on summer traditions and travels. Austin Sailsbury reminisces over his childhood summer camp, Nikaela Peters explores our tendency to migrate towards water, and the Rhoads illustrate the spontaneity of a weekend on the road.
All in all this volume reminds us that with the fleeting moments that we call life, especially in the intensity of summer, to grab a dear one and build a memory. We can find these moments in our own homes, our neighborhoods, or they may even take us thousands of miles away. Use the months that are upon us to find and live the essence of summer that is agreeable to you. As the sun lingers longer there are endless possibilities for new explorations, and ample time for revisiting old customs.
