Scenes From The Weekend
Normally, I find myself excited for the cyclical change of season. It's just that this particular summer was extra good to me and nostalgia isn't so keen on letting go of its tight grip on my wrist. I'm also feeling nervous about all of the significant changes coming--a new school, new classroom, new children, new colleagues.
It feels like time is slipping through my fingers.
Spending the weekend on the Cape did little to quell the dichotomy. It was a perfect two-day respite, which only triggered an even greater sense of disillusionment that busy-busy September is just days away.
And yet, I'm dizzy with excitement for the next few months: a lot of beautiful things waiting there just around the corner.
Ah, conundrums. For now, I'll sit at my kitchen table and reminisce about midnight bonfires on the beach, alfresco family dinners and wine time with cousins. Thanks, Cape Cod: you never fail me.
