"Enjoy it while you can" — 4 Comments

  1. While I know when it ends, canonically, I tend to think of summer as “over” starting September 1st. My kids are back at school and little hints of fall start cropping up here and there (though it won’t be fall weather in Oklahoma until closer to October!) Plus the stores have had Halloween crap out for weeks already, so it’s kind of hard for me not to start slipping into an autumn state of mind (not to be confused with a New York state of mind, the attainment of which generally centers around small, hairy Italian men).

  2. Mary: Having no children, both my local (day to day) and global (year to year) sense of time is distorted. I have no school and no life events to regulate it. For example, a college friend found recently on facebook mentions a child out of the nest who I last saw as an infant. How and when does that happen? And when did I turn into an old cummer?

    Michael: My mother obeyed those rules, especially with regard to shoes and pocketbooks. I was wearing yellow, but he possibly saw the Bristol Renaissance Faire on it. As for academic life, with UofC’s slightly offbeat quarter (vs. semester) system, fall begins after the Jewish holidays, so my seasons were different from everyone else’s there, too. Can’t win!
