So long to Summer

The Twirl and Swirl of Letters

So Summer is gone, drifting away like a seed downstream. I’ve moved back to my beloved city, ready to grapple with this semester’s courses, continuing my own research, and hopefully writing a good portion of The Novel, along with countless other projects.

Last night, rather than get to sleep at a reasonable hour, I did a quick search of what RAF books my school has; I lucked into a memoir by Peter Townsend (with an “R” and without an “H”), a British ace of the era. Though I haven’t started reading it yet, I’m certain the first person account will help me get a sense of everything; and who knows, maybe my characters will fly Hurricanes instead.

I’m eagerly anticipating the challenges before me.

  1. For my part, I look forward to the cooler temperatures of autumn. I despise the heat and humidity of a Northeastern US summer.


  2. Geeze. You guys don’t know what hot summers are like until you’ve walked 2 blocks in Phoenix when it’s 115 outside for 20 consecutive days.


    1. It might have been hot, but I bet it was also dry. All you’d have to do is stay out of the sun and drink plenty of water (and eat salty stuff).


  3. Good luck!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Um, and I’ll up you, Yarnspnr. Because probably you have air conditioning? Try that in a country where the only air conditioners are in the capital, and you, coincidentally, are not. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m so glad to have A/C again… *loves A/Cs*
