Cool breezes and dancing shadows greet me as I pass through a secluded woodland. The warming sun filters through the trees awakening violets, unfurling ferns, and drying mayapples on the forest floor. It is the start of a new day and the beginning of a new season. The earth has a different tempo, a spicy scent, and an electric current flowing through it, as if to say: welcome to the vibrant life of summer.
