Do you feel like you should be buying school supplies? Notebooks, calendars, new pencils. I still go back to school shopping with my children, which satisfies the craving, but I have a feeling that I’ll end up buying pencil cases and graphing calculators even after my last child graduates from college.
I’ve just finished the latest draft of my book, and finished a new story as well. Now, as September approaches, I feel as though I should be starting a new project–although I have a couple outstanding. There’s something about the light this time of year, a shift from head on summer intensity to a shier autumn light. The days are cool; the air is crisp. Classes are starting up again. Everything seems possible.
