My wife Jan came home from the grocery store this week quite ticked off that huge Halloween displays were already up! Halloween is 9 weeks away! She even tried to find the store manager to give serious complaint! He seemed to be hiding; or, perhaps was in costume already.
Here we are, trying to fully enjoy and soak in these last halcyon summer days, but once again retailers are thrashing through to the “next thing!” In our Time For Love post, I quoted the 17th Century mathematician, theologian and poet Blaise Pascal who remarked, that even three centuries ago…
“We live in times,” he writes, “that do not belong to us; the future or the past, and fail to live in the only time (the present) that truly is ours to live.” “It’s inevitable” he suggests, “that we may never live, but only hope to live…” – Blaise Pascal – 1623-1662
And of course, we are fully in the “back to school” mode, with all the agitated driving and increasing anxiety this season promises. ‘Tis the season to be… stressed?
Summer is winding down. But September has just barely begun!
Summertime. I think of Ella singing it, and of scenes like Norman Rockwell’s “The Fishing Hole” cover for the Post.
This chap – taking a sweet break on a hot summer work-day – seems to have got it right! He’s having no trouble at all, “living in the present!”
Well… we’d like to do our part in helping to make a gentler and happier transition into the next month. September doesn’t have to be an intensely scheduled season to be survived.
As the days begin to shorten and to cool, plan on heating up your love-life!
