by Julie, dealing with rain and heat in Somerville, but still loving the 4th
My two favorite holidays have always been the 4th of July and Thanksgiving. They are about food, friends/family and fun. As I’ve gotten older, both days have taken on a bit of a more somber tone. The meaning of the holidays require some thought. I miss people who aren’t here any more to celebrate with me. Sometimes it takes a bit more effort to embrace the fun. Nevertheless, I persist.
To those who celebrate, have a wicked wonderful 4th of July. To those who don’t, do something fun today.
