We’re off for the US Labor Day holiday, which traditionally marks the end of summer, and the point at which one should no longer wear white shoes or pants (unless, of course, one is at a resort or one is Coco Chanel). After a dizzying August of publisher and research society meetings, I’m sure that many of us feel that this summer has zipped by, with little downtime for relaxation.

But as Jonathan Richman reminds us in the song below, summer is more than just a season, and there’s no reason we should limit “that summer feelin'” with the constraints of the calendar.

We’ll be back Tuesday with new posts.
