BACK-TO-SCHOOL

August 21, 2012

Dear Friends,
Personally, I am happy to see this summer end.  Well, the blisteringly hot, hazy drag-of-a-summer, end. Not the lovely times celebrating daughter Meg’s engagement, my sister Dorothy’s Masters and new teaching job, and singing in the back yard.  Say what you want about summer’s end, routine is good for humans and other creatures.

I wrote the first story in a long while about school days in anticipation of the next installment of Songs of a Catholic Childhood in September.  I read the story to the remarkable group of writers in my Roots Salon, before testing out and testing out an excerpt on WGN Radio. Mr. Kogan said I passed!



READING, WRITING

End of summer

 

You feel it the air. The shorter days.
The wet grass on your bare feet as you frantically
run the bases one more time before heading in for supper.  Summer is going and you’re being left behind.”
