Houston, summer is nearly upon us. It will last until mid October. It will be hot, humid, embracing, and soft. You will walk from icy cold department stores and offices into a warm, woolly, almost overpowering and stifling stillness. Evening provides little relief. Breezes are rare. So move a little more slowly. Put on a hat and a long-sleeved white shirt along with some baggy trousers. Get outside as much as possible at the Hobbit Cafe, Miller Outdoor Theater, or the zoo so your body can remember to sweat. Go to Brazos Bend State Park and walk around Elm Lake. Go to Galveston and ride the ferry to Bolivar for a breeze and the dolphins. I once feared the heat, but now I simply move more slowly and seek grapefruit juice.
