I’ve returned from my brief stint at SFU just in time to realize that summer is nearly over! Just the other night a good friend of mine asked if we could make plans to visit the gardens of Casa Loma before it started to get cold outside. Can August really be halfway through? Can summer really be coming to a close?
I’m afraid it’s true folks. But the good news is that we’ll always have the memories. The remembrances of warmth and weekends away at the cottage are sure to keep us until next year while we wait out the long Canadian winter. We enter September swearing we’ll do it better next time: plan better, think ahead, fit more into our summer months. But the truth is that next year will be upon us before we know it, and we’ll look up, blinking at the sun. Summer again?
