|New month. Two and a half months to go and I'm gone from here. One thing I just realized this morning, as I'm watching the rain fall and standing on my porch -- the very porch I vowed to enjoy this summer by sitting and reading and watching the world go by -- thinking of missing the months of August and September for porch sitting, I'm not going to be here for fall! Oh my gosh. No fall. No being surrounded by burning, bright colors! That is truly going to be a sacrifice. I suppose I will be able to meaner through Central Park, but it isn't going to be the same. And, it isn't like I could hope in a car and drive up through New England. I'm not really bummed out, but I am truly going to miss the season!
