Where has summer gone? Even though the days still get up in the 90's periodically, you know that its gone -- just a fading few days.
Remember younger years, when the end of summer meant heading back to classes -- renewing old acquaintances, but, also each year taking on harder and harder studies.
The cool fall breezes blew in football games and school dances. I loved the cool walk to school before the breezes started stinging.
But each year, I would wonder how summer passed so fast. Why didn't I savor it more? Why didn't I do more?
Summer is a like a footprint on the beach -- once the waves roll in, the footprint goes away -- never to be found again -- except as a memory.
