A Little More Summer?
Yes, I absolutely love the changing of the seasons: the colors, the smells, actually using 12 of my 45 scarves … fall is forever welcomed.
But letting go of summer is always so bittersweet. Those moments of long days & late nights, running around barefoot, laughing among groups of friends, cheersing to the moonlight, are perfectly paired with that summertime soundtrack.
So here I sit, looking at the calendar that finalizes the end of summer. September 22 is the day autumn officially begins: today’s the day where daylight and darkness equal. What’s next? We’ll be losing about three minutes of daylight each day until we are swallowed by December’s dark chill. Yaaayyy …
Let me dip my head in sadness a little while longer. Just long enough for me to listen to Jason Aldean’s “Little More Summertime” once more. And then maybe again.
Maybe I shouldn’t be so dismal. Soon enough, summer 2018 will be here and I’ll have found a bright, new soundtrack to lift my spirits.
I suppose we have to come across these goodbyes so we can better welcome the next hellos. It’s all about perspective, right? RIGHT? Yes. That, and optimism.
Optimism: maybe I’ll hibernate through winter and wake up to warmer weather.
