As the last few days of Summer have been tiptoeing, slipping away the realization of just how fast the rest of it went is sinking in. August was a whirlwind of setting my plans in place for the new school year - and then changing them at the last minute, waiting by the phone to hear news of my ailing grandfather, trying to help my mom, his caregiver, whilst trying to keep my own home going. The absence from extra curricular activities has been in an attempt to take a step back and reorganize my self: body, soul, and mind . . . to re-prioritize and to try to find something I've lost.
I think I always feel like this at the end of Summer. It's like saying goodbye to a dear friend for awhile.
