Yesterday I walked from the High School to the studio. It was a beautiful afternoon and I was loving it up until the point when I noticed that there were yellow, dead leaves on the ground and even more up on the branches waiting to fall. The seasons are changing again, this time from days spent in shorts sweating in the heat of the sun to days spent in sweaters cuddled up sipping tea under blankets. Both kinds of days are lovely but I just don't feel ready yet to make the transition. I want those leaves to hang on a little while longer, I want the sun to stick around so I can spend more days sitting in my backyard. I don't need an endless summer, I just want a little more time before I transition into shorter days, longer nights, and bundling up.
