Summer is quickly coming to a close. Those long, lazy days of picnics at Bass Lake, puttering with the perennials, campfires and s'mores, seeing wonderful talent at the Hayes Center for the Performing Arts, eating at Knights on Main Street, browsing the quaint town of Blowing Rock...all these things will be part of summer gone by of 2008. I look forward to getting back to FL, getting some work done, but the thought of having to hide in a bubble of air conditioning makes me sad. I won't be able to sip my coffee on the deck overlooking the gorge, hear the tree frogs cacaphonous chorus at night, smell the fresh mountain air as it wafts through open windows. Another summer come and gone. Like life. Far too quickly.
