RUSHING INTO FALL

The beach is a deserted place today. The kids are back in school, the summer residents are closing their homes, there's a chill in the air. The shelves in the grocery store are being stocked with Halloween candy. One season is about to end and another begin. The cycle continues. So many good times were had and will be remembered again and again. The chairs await next summer's occupants, it's really not that far off you know. Memories to be made and told and retold. Again and again.

  1. Nice view of the deserted beach, and your words are perfectly descriptive of the between-seasons mood.

  19. Nice prose I identify with. Yes, I agree, (over-the-top) Death in Venice was moving, and with the music unforgetable

  20. I love the chairs and the color and the whole scene. Chill in the air? B2 you'd better stay a while longer. There ain't no chill here or down your way either, trust moi. Enjoy!

  22. Love the colorful chairs along the beach. I think summer is a state of mind and there's still plenty of summer fun to be had before the snow. ;)
