I survived my first week back at school and am enjoying a fantastic long weekend. The weather today is p e r f e c t, and as I sip my coffee in my house clear of clutter, humidity, the sound of overworked and ailing air conditioners, and summer project lists, I’m not actually anxious to get outside. I will get there eventually--today is the last day my pool is open, after all--but it’s the kind of day you can actually enjoy the weather while indoors. In fact, today reminds me of an early summer day, only my windows are open after months of closing out the humidity, not months of closing out the bitter cold. And today I don’t feel the promise of summer ahead, I feel the inevitably of autumn.
And, believe it or not, I’m okay with that.
