When Spring comes, a young girl's head starts turning towards Summer. Every year I dub a new summer theme because a girl simply has to have something to look forward to and planning ahead never hurts.A look back at the decade thus far reveals: 2000: Summer of Debauchery That summer we were all newly single or still single, singledom ruled and we were not about to roll around in sadness over the state so dubbed the summer of debauchery. This particular summer highly figured Ruby Two Shoes who had more than his fair share of debauchery. I, however, was very good, wink wink nudge nudge. 2001: Summer of Creativity It was a summer of writing, painting, fringe plays and general embracing of the arts. Highly enjoyable and good for the soul. Asylus figured greatly in this summer and we even enjoyed the dance of the sky as we jumped from a plane in anticipation of fringe extravaganza. 2002: Summer of Bohemia It was a strange summer of the Dandy Warhols and 'all about me', the search for self and discovery of more changes. It was up and down but never boring and resulted in a good next year. 2003: Summer of Self-Indulgance (also known as the summer of the slug) It was a summer of musica, laying in fields ears open and mouths embracing bubble tea and assorted foods. It was warm tans and lazing about in warmth enjoying being in love. Lovely. Which brings us to the upcoming Summer of 2004. Parties involved seem to be in agreement. Thus I dub thee "Summer of Free Expression" Do with it as you will.
