Summer's End

When summer gathers up her robes of glory,
And, like a dream, glides away
Sarah Hillman Whitman

While the calender says summer has a few more weeks to hang around for most of us Labor Day weekend spells the end of summer. Although school started a couple of weeks ago here, many communities start after Labor Day....my home state included. I'll be traveling there on Tuesday to spend three weeks with my Mom. Also there will be a trip to Canada for a few of those days to see a couple of friends.

Autumn has always been my favorite season. It's the fullness of growth come to fruition and the beginning of another cycle of change. This autumn visit is especially poignant. It probably will be the last one I'll experience with my Mom. I hope that during this time we have some time to share the fruits of her life and in what she has given to me, I'll begin the next cycle of mine.
