I walked home tonight with my books held tightly to my chest and the wind whipping my hair around me like a scarf. I giggled a little as I fought the breeze. It seems I spent so much energy waiting for a Summer that never seemed to come. Then September 1 showed up and Miss Autumn knows exactly where she belongs. I didn’t even realize it was time yet. All of the sudden I stopped feeling like I’d been cheated out of a Summer. Out of no where Fall is here and out of no where I am giddily excited about her arrival.
