Summer, when you leave why must you depart so abruptly?

It was just a couple of weeks ago that I was sweating myself to sleep. This afternoon I crawled into bed with the heating pad turned on high just to get warm.

There is something disconcerting about the sudden change in temperature. It’s as if the season broke up with us, minus any preemptive conversation.

I mean, yes, I did voice my complaints during the last heat wave. Not vociferously, but I was a tad grumpy. The thing is, that was a passing emotion.

Now it’s already getting dark by eight…which will soon be five (damn daylight savings). The truth is I am far more productive when the days feel endless and the temperature is balmy. And the end of al fresco dining is going to put a real damper on my barely there social life.

Is it too late to apologize? If we clap could we have an encore? Or could you just take your time with fall?

Because this girl’s really not feeling winter.

One response to “Adios

  1. I can so relate Linnea! I have been greatly enjoying finally being able to swim outdoors in mid June. As the water became warmer I swam, and then two weeks ago as the heat abated the water cooled off and I was very happy. This week it’s been too cold in the morning to swim, just once so far and the pool closes on Tuesday. As you mentioned, soon I won’t be able to eat outside with friends and I/we will be back to isolation. You will, as I, make Art!❤️✊🏽
