Signs of Summer (Soon to Disappear)

27 Aug

The lifeguard stand.  A classic symbol of summer (for Northerners, at least).  As it sat, empty, my mind raced ahead to what will be coming.


To be honest, I’ve had some subversive thoughts lately: dreaming of (longing for) snow.  This makes me unfaithful to summer and to all of the people who aren’t ready for summer to end.  (And there are a lot of them.)

Don’t get me wrong: I dislike bitterly cold weather.   But there are other things about winter that are (in my opinion) worth the low temperatures.  Things like the pure beauty of a snow-dusted lawn.

But with highs forecasted to be in the upper 80s this week, lovers of dog days fear not!


À mercredi,
