winding down the summer


I can not believe that summer is almost at end.  It happens every year.  Summer just flies by.  It really doesn’t but it seems like it does. 

I can’t help but think of the Jonathan Richman song “That Summer Feeling”.  It is exactly how I feel right now.  I will be sorry to lose it but as always after the summer I come back to the city feeling refreshed and with a new head on my shoulders.

For many reasons, I spend way too much time thinking about why, what and where instead of just doing what I do.  I am going to work on that this fall. 

At the end of every summer I am usually ready to run to the city.  This year I could use a few more days, just one or two.  Maybe because the kids are older.  Who knows the reason but I will say one thing….I absolutely achieved “the look”.  I just wonder how long it will be until that look is gone.  Alas. 

I will tell you the one thing I won’t miss about summer….washing beach towels.
