Sunday Drive: Diamonds and Rust

Friday night, went to the store to get a few things.  Noticed a neighbor in the next block has a kind of Christmas-tree looking thing on the front porch, only covered with orange lights; when did that start?  At the store, Halloween crap is all over the shelves, just a couple days into autumn.

Summer's gone already.  I didn't even notice till the ex-roommate called and told me.  Which just goes to show how easily we pass from one season of life to another - silent, unsuspecting, all unknowing.  By the time you notice the ground sloping away before you, you've already crested the hill.  Facilis descensus . . . .

An old favorite here from one of the great voices of our time.  Actually, in looking I discovered several more I would have liked to share with you guys, but a choice had to be made.  A choice must always be made, in the end, whither or no.  So here it is - enjoy.

I am waiting to the first of OCt to put out Fall items. Then it is Christmas time once again.

Hope you have a wonderful day.

I have a neighbor like that--orange light at Halloween, Xmas lights, valentine's day lights, july 4th lights, easter lights (pastel crap)... Ugh, I can only imagine the electric bill they rack up...

But you're right--the seasons change more quickly, it seems, as I get older... Endless summers are a dream of the past, catching fire flies, camp fires, swimming in my grandparents pond... Great memories all, and thank you, sir, for reminding me of them!

No problem, bud. Hang on tight to those good memories. In the end, that's all you can hang on to.
