The Summer’s Gone

I played this song last night and again this morning. It’s sort of a yearly tradition.

I love Buffalo Tom and play them a lot. However, I feel like need to hear this particular song to mark the end of my summer ever year. I don’t know why. I just do.

Summer is now officially over for me since I am back at work this morning. That’s probably why I spent yesterday in a melancholy mood. I lazed around the house doing nothing all day long. I guess it’s just knowing that summer is over and the possibility that I might have wasted it.

But did I waste it?

I don’t think I did.

I finally took an upgrading course and passed it with honours. I did a lot of reading. I did two great interviews for Dope FM (see the side bar). I started working on a brand new segment for the show. And of course, I spent a lot of quality time with my family.

But I never actually went away for more than a day trip here and there. So it wasn’t really a vacation. Although I did manage to hit the beach a few times. That was really nice.
I went for lots of trail runs. I ran up the escarpment again. And I enjoyed my time off.
So, I can’t say that I wasted my summer. I wish I’d done some more writing. I really need to start working on another novel. But I guess that can be a winter project. Perhaps it wasn’t reasonable to expect myself to take a course and find the time to write creatively outside of that as well.

Most Canadians don’t consider summer over until Labour Day has passed. So to all of you, I wish you the best last week of summer possible. Enjoy every minute of it.

  1. Hi Chase,

    It sounds like you had a great summer. You got to do a little of everything and are now rested up for the new school year.

    Myself, I worked most of the summer, but did make time to tend to my flower garden, take a couple of short trips, spend time with family and friends, and met new friends online.

    Life is good.

    Have a great Labor Day weekend.
