for those of us of "a certain age" september always
heralded the return to school..our year was september
until june. i could have cared less about new clothes and
shoes but the school supplies…oh how i loved them!
the new book satchel (we didn't have book bags)
smelling of vinyl…
pencils..paper and the box of fat…flat backed crayons…
all added to a sacred brew of smells that
morphed into a great love of art supplies.
it doesn't feel very septembery today…the thermometer
on the screened porch reads 93 degrees.. but just knowing
that it's september and autumn is around the corner causes a
little quickening in my soul.
