Time of transitions
Ok folks, I have waited all summer for a day like today. There is a cool breeze moving the leaves outside my living room window. The air is fresh and without all that humidity. This is a big cause for celebration in my world. It has been a challenging summer with so much heat and high humidity. I haven’t enjoyed my deck like in years past nor have I been on any bike rides on rail trails due to the oppressive conditions. Well that all changed today!! I thoroughly enjoyed a bike ride around town this afternoon and later today, I am meeting family at an outdoor patio at a local restaurant.
The welcome change of the weather isn’t the only transition this week. The college students return to school. Perhaps one of your beloved family members is packing up and getting ready for the new semester.
There is a bit of letdown for me at this time of year as September looms right around the corner. Although it has been decades since I have been in school, my heart still flutters a bit when I see those big, yellow buses lumbering down our street. I need to remind myself to be present in this moment and allow the myriad of memories and body sensations to move through me as I enjoy what is in my world right now.
Happy time of transition to you. May you enjoy the changing landscape from summer time to shifting to fall. We New Englanders are lucky to have the weather underscore the change of seasons.
