We’re back! Sadly, I don’t have many photos of my summer, decided to pocket the phone for awhile and live in the moment (barf) rather than through a lens.
Most things took a back seat in August, as we knew it would. We filled up our weeks and weekends, with a few days of rest in between and what resulted was that familiar feeling that we all have: that of time standing still and simultaneously flying past us. I listened to a Quirks & Quarks about the relationship of memory and time, and how time feels slower when we create new memories. And this summer, I created so many new memories that I feel like August lasted forever.
