we frolicked around in our summer skin

Summer is finally peeking its head here! I'm not sure I'm ready for the scorching days ahead, but I am quite excited for the sunshine. These past few months seem like a blurness of rainy days. I love rainy days, but you do need to feel the sun upon your face, and the blue sky that comes along with it.
I'm going to the park today, it's similiar to Central park, however, I'm pretty sure it's better. While Central Park has a wonderful, enchanting feeling when you go, here it feels like you're on an exotic adventure.  There are enormous trees that have probably been around for thousands of years. Last time, I made friends with the ducks that were playing near the river. Oh, and it was summer as well! I can't believe it's been almost a year since I've been back.

Nonetheless, someone mentioned to me that they're having a Little Prince exhibition to celebrate the many years this lovely book has made children smile. Although, I do think it has made adults smile a bit more than the children.

"When one wishes to play the wit, he sometimes wanders a little from the truth. I have not been altogether honest in what I have told you about the lamplighters. And I realize that I run the risk of giving a false idea of our planet to those who do not know it. Men occupy a very small place upon the Earth. If the two billion inhabitants who people its surface were all to stand upright and somewhat crowded together, as they do for some big public assembly, they could easily be put into one public square twenty miles long and twenty miles wide. All humanity could be piled up on a small Pacific islet.
The grown-ups, to be sure, will not believe you when you tell them that. They imagine that they fill a great deal of space. They fancy themselves as important as the baobabs. You should advise them, then, to make their own calculations. They adore figures, and that will please them. But do not waste your time on this extra task. It is unnecessary. You have, I know, confidence in me." 

(Chapter 17, Little Prince)


  1. How lucky you are to have summer right around the corner. Here in Norway it's all rainy days and the occasional chilly day with a weak sun :(

    ps. I love the title of your post as well as the deathcab for cutie song (was listening to it on my way to work today)

  2. I wish I was there! It sounds so lovely!
    and I love that book ;]
