an uncertain hour

Summer is nearing its end as the days grow shorter, shadows longer, this sense of fleeting sun heightened as the last vestiges of Hermine wrap the coast in rain, wind and clouds for several days. In contrast, the rhythm of the house has changed with the start of the new school year, an extra bustle of activity, energy, and excitement. September always feels like the start of a new year, a chance for new beginnings. Our local college town shakes off the sleepy laziness of summer as the students return while back in the studio with new projects, goals, deadlines, and resolutions an eagerness and restlessness to begin anew take hold.
