The end of the summer season is bittersweet. For me there's always a longing for time to slow down. I wish that there could be more summer days so that I can attempt to mark more things of my mental summer bucket list. More vacations, more time spent on the water and lounging on the hammock and less time worrying about the hustle and bustle that will inevitably arrive along with the school year.
On a more positive note, the end of summer also brings beautiful things too. In the pacific northwest we get the gift of an abundance of blackberries growing naturally around every corner.
