Where did time go? I was walking under the trees outside the office and noticed that some of the leaves had already started falling. It's getting cooler and the days are getting shorter. It's hard not to want to be outside as much as possible while there's still some sun and warmth left.
It's been a mellow, peaceful summer, which is a first in as long as I can remember. No dancing commitments. Work's slowed to a manageable hum. I've done better at turning down unnecessary projects.
I'm also six scenes away from finishing this draft of the current WIP. The finish line is in sight, but it's been hard to motivate myself to finish.
Sun. Warmth. Sitting on the beach with El and talking over coffee or maybe ice cream. Just being still. Just being together. Sometimes that's all I want when the weather's nice.
I know I'll have to leave this city soon, and maybe that's why its so hard to sit indoors and shut out the world right now. I've only got a few months left in this apartment, and this neighborhood, I've lived in for the last five years. I'm going to miss it.
After October my life's going to take a different shape. Not in a bad way, but it will be different. So I'm hanging on to the last days of summer...
How has your summer been?
