On My Mind

Labor Day

Maine coast by Michael Davis

For us, Labor Day is the last day of summer. I drove my older daughter back to boarding school this morning and the air smelled different in Connecticut and the trees were starting to turn. Although I am ready for a change of  seasons, the end of this summer is bittersweet. My younger daughter tells me that “summer would not be special if it lasted all year”. So true.

  • Feeling similar bittersweetness here. Today is absolutely the last day of summer, and while I’m ready, just as you say, it’s also sad to say goodbye to another season. xo

  • Always find the end of summer bittersweet, but as an educator it is also my personal new year so with the sadness of the end of summer comes new energy and resolve.

  • I am melancholy on this rainy day on Long Beach Island, but filled with nervous excitement (like every September) for what the new “school” year has to offer. Back to the busy big city and hopefully Indian Summer, my favorite season of all.

  • I am in NY and its been chilly so i guess fall is already beginning to show… and yes its true, if you had summer all year long like we do where i live, you would not appreciate it so much. I sure know i dont.

  • Like the native New Englander that I am, I find I am always ready for the change. Love your daughter’s take on it!
