The End of Summer is Nigh

It's dark at 6:16 am.
I need a sweater to check out the morning glories today, and I realize that each year summer slips by faster than it should. Gone are the days of having what feels like eons to enjoy the break, the lull, the freedom that summer brings. But today, the morning already has that "back to school" feeling.

I'm not disappointed, just sort of rolling in melancholy.
And thinking of socks and turtlenecks.
