This is the last week of August and in my mind, this is the end of summer. I don’t listen to equinox people, the days are already getting shorter (and have been for many weeks) and students will be returning to school next week.
On a selfish note, I cringe at the return of students to school. They clog up the transit system in the mornings. They make what was a leisurely and comfortable bus ride on most summer mornings into a crammed, cattle-car simulation in the fall. I get so ornery and crusty in my old age.
