I recently watched The Kings of Summer. The film really impressed me with its specificity and ability to really communicate what is like to be on summer vacation as an adolescent male. It made me think and reflect on my own childhood summers.
Summers in Indiana are hot.
My mom would drop me off at my grammies where Id hang out with my cousins.
We had a couple friends in the neighborhood whom we played with everyday.
We Only had a couple bikes but we made due.
I was obsessed with Allen Iverson at the time he was a smaller player and gave me hope of one day making the league.
I look back on those days now and even though all of my friends didn't make it to 2013. I'm happy I was able to spend that time with them.
