Hello September, please be gentle on me. Now that Labor Day has come and gone, and the school bus outside is a reminder that we are all in some way saying a farewell to summer. Parts of me feel a longing already for the end of days filled with garden flowers, ice tea, chatting on the porch till all hours, and a carelessness that I only truly feel in summertime. But I am trying very hard to be in the present tense, and not wish away the next few beautiful months, while the weather changes to crisp fall days. And so it begins, another season.
