Summer’s End

End of a Season…

Here, in the United States, the first Monday in September marks Labor Day holiday and, with it, the end of summer…season. Once September starts settling in, slowly, but surely, days become shorter and grayer, temps lower. Nature starts to decompose, one dry leaf at a time, but not before showing off its colors, just once more. Yet, by that time, summer becomes only a beautiful memory that we need to hold to, in order to survive what follows it.

So, I’d like to mark my summer’s end with a few images I’ve taken during this glorious season. This summer, I’ve enjoyed going to the New York City Pride and spending time, there, with friends and people I look up to. I’ve also spent even more time teaching and in between got to enjoy a few sunny summer days.

Here are a few images capturing important moments of my summer:

What comes after summer? In many ways, a vast, gray unknown, I believe. In order to go through it and come out of it alive, we’ll have to keep our summer’s memories alive in our minds, as well as in our hearts.

Hope you all had a wonderful summer. May the nice weather linger a little longer.

As always, thanks for stopping by.
