Sweet Nostalgia

          School starts for me tomorrow. I know that the first week of school always makes me nostalgic for summer. This summer has been one of the best summers I've ever had. I have been in recovery for over a year now and I finally feel comfortable in myself. This summer was definitely dedicated to trying new things. That wasn't my plan at the beginning but it turned out to be and I'm satisfied.
          I could not even began to recall all the lovely adventures I've had this summer. And even if I could, it would take hours to articulate and elaborate. On a superficial level, summer was kayaking at night, staying up all night, traveling to new places, revisiting old places, reading my favorite novels and new books, discovering meditation, film cameras and photo shoots, thrifting, bike riding, chai spice lattes, tea, spending hours at coffee shops, meeting new people and making new friends, record players, visits to the beach, typewriters, frozen yogurt, car rides at night, road trips, movie marathons, daydreaming, lounging in the sun, waking up in the afternoon, having a job, wearing victory curls and lipstick, discovering my love of the 60's, living and breathing art, collecting beautiful things, visiting my dream college, learning to drive, walks in the park, baking cookies, and wearing floral dresses and pretty hats.
          Summer, I will miss you.

I feel the same way - I love summer time and I always feel sad at the start of fall / winter. Maybe because winters are so terribly brutal here in Boston.

Goodluck with school. It is always so sad when summer ends but there is something very satisfying about reflecting back and knowing you tried new things and had adventures like you did.
