Inspiring storyteller, writer and speaker, Dr. Nina Kelly anticipates the joys and wonders that summer brings and encourages readers to make the most of the promise and possibilities summertime presents.
New Orleans, LA – July 11, 2019 – Dr. Nina M. Kelly, Inspirational Storyteller, Coach, Author and Co-Author of The Big Question with Larry King, and Success Mastery and Success Breakthroughs with Jack Canfield, recently posted a new article on her website entitled, “Summer Inspires Stories,” in which Dr. Kelly exhibits a true sense of love for this season which begins on the longest day of the year, the Summer Solstice.
Dr. Kelly conjures up the very essence of summer writing, “Long, lazy days, soft, warm breezes, and adventures beckon. The music of children laughing and waves breaking on the shore. The smell of hamburgers and hot dogs and fresh-shucked corn sizzling on the grill.”
As Dr. Kelly points out, “In our neck of the woods you’re likely to be enticed by the aroma of crab and shrimp boils. Summer is the time we feast on piles of fresh caught crabs and shrimp boiled and tossed across the picnic table on newspaper.”
“The unhurried pace, the tinkling of ice-cold glasses filled with lemonade and sweet tea,” writes Dr. Kelly. She adds, “This is summertime pretty much wherever you live. If it’s not waves breaking on the ocean shore, it’s the scent of sunscreen and the sound of kids splashing in pools and lakes across the country.”
As Dr. Kelly sees it, “Summer is truly an inspiring time of year.” She elaborates, “Between the lushness and bounty of Mother Nature the excitement of being able to spend hours outside soaking up the sunshine (with sunscreen of course) and staying outside deep into the night is a true luxury.”
According to Dr. Kelly, “A certain sense of freedom fills the soul with joy. Kids don’t have to go to school. Many kids head off to summer camp where they may stay up late into the gentle nights sitting around camp fires making s’mores and competing with each other to see who can tell the scariest stories.” She adds, “Many adults get to go on vacation during the summer months. Whether it’s a stay-at-home adventure, a visit to relatives who live in another state or a totally exotic vacation to an unexplored destination, summer provides a delicious freedom from the daily routine.”
