"Poor summer, it doesn't know it's dying.
A few days are all it has. Still, the lake
is with me, its strokes of blue-violet
and the fiery sun replacing loneliness.

I feel like an animal that has found a place.
This is my burrow, my nest, my attempt
to say, I exist..."

(Embers by Henri Cole)

Yes, Summer is coming to an end. Long, carefree days will soon be replaced by shorter, busier ones. I scurry about like a squirrel, I don't want to miss a thing! There has been no need for an alarm clock, a rooster from a neighboring farm made sure I'd rise and shine quite early...and it's  crowing made me happy. 

These past few days have been full of new adventures. I learnt to build and start a fire, got used to not having a computer or a dishwasher...and these newness made me happy.   

I have met new friends, learned how does Poison Ivy look like, visited an old fashioned ice cream parlor with a selection so large, they actually have a menu, and just yesterday, I realized I no longer scream or jump when I see a Daddy Longleg spider...and this new found courage made me happy.

I hope you too enjoyed a special Summer full of magic and new lessons. May the memories last, and may the sun's dying embers keep you warm on the coming cool nights.

Tomorrow I shall go back to the Purple Caravan for a few more days, till my return, thank you SO MUCH for your lovely comments, I wish you all a beautiful weekend.
