It's that time of year that I dread. Fall. I actually like fall, but it just means that winter is right around the corner. The leaves turning in a brilliance of colors, the comfortable temperatures, and the warm feeling you get thinking about seeing family during Thanksgiving ... all great.
But summer should last all year in my opinion. At least maybe with a little bit of spring. I suppose summer wouldn't be so great without the dull winter to remind us how awesome the rebirth of foliage and flowers and sunshine is.
Each year for maybe the past 8 years I go through the same thing. I have even written a poem about it several years ago and posted it here, last fall.
There is about one week left of summer until the first day of autumn, September 22nd. I'm going to try and savour it as long as possible. And after that it's high time I accepted defeat and embraced the new season by getting out some decorations, which may help my outlook. But unlike other bloggers, I'm not that excited about it, as you can tell.
I also have some exciting, life changing events coming up which I will blog about in an upcoming post. These new changes I AM SURE will take my mind off of the changing season. The only thing that stays the same, is change. A quote my Mother passed down to me which I repeat to myself quite often because you can't argue with the truth.
