Summer's End

Labor Day Fireworks

The calendar may disagree, but Labor Day Weekend always seems to mark the end of summer.  Although weeks before, the kids started school and weeks to follow will still see the temperatures soar, the long weekend brings closure to those carefree days of possibilities - days that are marked with play and exploration and dreams.  With fall encroaching, we nestle into our practice and studies and routines - routines that, without their playful contrast, would hold far less comfort and warmth and meaning.

Each year our neighborhood forgoes the traditional 4th of July Fireworks and instead, commemorates the summer's farewell.  We viewed them by boat with for the double effect of fire and water.
