Summer ends, but where’s my fall?

Life has been going by so quickly this summer that I find it is often hard to take a second, look around, and take stock.

Today, that is precisely what I’m going to try to do.

Whenever summer break begins, I have an almost childlike longing to be free of concerns and responsibilities. I long to be able to pack up the family and head for trails unknown, never looking back and with no regrets.

Of course, summer ends. As school ramps back up, even though I have no scholastic duties, (per se) it feels like the walls are beginning to close in on me again. I am blessed beyond measure (I know, it is like my mantra). I have a wonderful wife and beautiful kids. I want to take them and run.

Would I feel different if I was actually content in what I was doing and the area where I live? I don’t know, but I think it would probably make a difference. Who knows?

This year will be an exciting year with many opportunities and adventures to be shared (and yes, I will be sharing), but today I can’t help but look back a bit.

This is where you come in. What have you done with your summer? Are you ready for it to end?
