Summer Memories



Time contracting
Memories of summer past
Stored for next season

I am a scientist by trade and artist by soul. My creative outlet used to be dancing but due to injuries and age, I must now find another path. I am hoping my writing, poetry and photography can be this new path.

  1. Like the week after Labor Day. Summer just seems to end, with an abrupt halt. 😕

  2. Yes. Where I grew up the Tuesday after Labor Day was the first day of school and it signaled the abrupt end of summer. Down south the kids go back to school mid-August so it is all down hill after the 4th of July. This makes no sense to me considering how hot it is down here…..

  3. We go back mid-August too. It’s like a sauna this week, from what I hear. We’re on way home from the OBX currently. When I was a kid, we went back after Labor Day too.
