Take a Dip

When the sun stays up late, and going barefoot is the walk of life. When an afternoon bevy turns into an evening beer, turns into a late night dance and a bike ride home, with the warm breeze flickering between my hair. Summer is the best time of year.

John Mill and Basketball

In any gym, there's a shrill squeak of sneakers against the polished wood floor, and the echoing thud of a basketball. More often than not, if you're a good shot, there's a swish of the net.
