The passing of summer, 2011
These are the last days of the Summer of 2011. A kindly summer, but a summer that saw very few of those most glorious days that summers in this part of the world can offer. C'est la vie.
Sometimes, when the zenith of summer passes, truths are unveiled, plot lines starkly exposed. There will be scarcities and hardships. There will be fear and anger. There will be grief and tears.
Times are tough and getting tougher.
It is prudent in such times not to expect too much of a summer. Or of anything, for that matter.
