goodbye summer

Life has been so hectic this summer. I entered it dreading it because I had no idea what was to come. And now looking back I can see there is no way I could have predicted the events of the past month. How cryptic does that sound?? I wouldn't be able to start writing about everything, though, without suddenly sounding unbearably dear-Diaryish.

I've been on a bit of a rollercoaster, and it's been fun and it's been horrible but it has never been in between. And so, I am very very tired. Tomorrow, I start my last year of school and I go back into a routine. I will have more time to think, to just be. To not be caught in the act of doing, and to be able to process the moments that just zipped past. And in doing so, I will finally write and read and reflect and rest. Maybe I'll even write more and better blog posts? (Here's hoping).

The unwinding process begins. And for the first time in a long time I have time to just sit and waste an hour watching terrible TV. Isn't that wonderful?


  1. It is wonderful. I watched 3 hours of the Real Housewives of New Jersey yesterday. I really enjoyed the mindless frivolity. Hope you have more than an hour. I also hope you find more time for blogging. And, FYI, I like the way your write your blog now. No need to change anything!

  2. No my dear, I long for a TV after living for a couple of years without. Sometimes a sofa, a cuppa and a programme is the best remedy xx
