Miles starts high school next week and so here I am, facing the inevitable end of summer. I get a sense of urgency while trying to slow it all down and attempt to defy time, resenting it and being ever so reluctant to prepare for fall; cramming in swim days, outdoor activities, BBQ's, and drive-in movies in hopes that I am left with no regrets of time wasted.
Fall has always been my favorite season but only after I have relinquished my hold on summer. Fall means a harvest, a turning of all things green to gold, amber, burnt umber and brick red. It also means my birthday is looming......sigh........which usually means a re-evaluation of goals and a reflection upon things accomplished. I don't want to do this but I know myself well enough to know that I will anyway.
But........it is only yet Aug 18th. The temperature will rise to 94 degrees today. Need I say more?
