Summer seems to be quickly winding down. The light is softening and the leaves are changing. Where has it gone. It seems that we waited so long for it to appear and in the blink of an eye it is disappearing.
Taking with it the memories of fresh tomatoes.
of baskets overflowing with tree ripened sweet peaches,
of roadsides decorated with colorful wildflowers,
of children with bare feet and sunglasses,
of precious time with family,
and of lazy walks down country lanes.
They are after all only simple memories, but they are memories that can be pulled out and dusted off when the melancholy of fall sets in. To be relived in my imagination as I make new memories.
Enjoy your day.
