A mid-summer purge can come on unexpectedly. You've had winter, bedded down in reflection, plan making and restoration. Spring bought with it the vigours of new energy and life, those plans taking form in various actions that should then swing pleasantly into the long summer months. And then just before mid-summer you have several weeks of chaotic and unexpected events that cause you to go back to the drawing board, assess the unforeseen potholes in said plans, regroup (integrity in hand, dignity dwindling somewhere behind but following nonetheless) and arming yourself with a renewed sense of opportunity and openness.
