Thank you, summer! It was fun. I'm not quite ready to say goodbye but I know you have to be on your way. The leaves are already starting to fall and you have other places to go. I'll miss you terribly. Please come back soon. I'm not so fond of the long, cold months that are ahead. At least I'll have the memories that we shared to get me through- feeling the hot breath of the sun on my skin, sipping beers on the back porch, riding my bike through the city streets at night, the cool breeze whispering through the leaves, family, friends, fun. Ah, yes...it was indeed a happy summer.
