I spent the last weekend of Summer 2012 with good friends in Cherry Grove on Fire Island. I’ve repeated what’s become an end-of-summer tradition for 4 years running now, and again we were blessed with perfect weather and abundant sunshine. Life is beautiful and life is good. The first day of fall — the autumnal equinox — begins in two days on September 22 at 10:49am EDT. Fall is my second favorite season (after summer) and I’m looking forward to a good one spent living each day to the fullest.
Man’s feelings are always purest and most glowing in the hour of meeting and of farewell.

Summer ends and fall 2011 officially arrives at 5:05 a.m. EDT today. I’m always a bit sad to see my favorite season — summer — end, so I try to savor and enjoy as much of it as I can up until the very last minute. Summer 2011 was very life-changing for me in many ways… a time of growth, change, happiness and many good memories. Bring on the fall!
