Summer so soon has glided by

09 Sep

At the start of the summer, I had so many plans as to what I’d do over the last few months: read ‘World’ Literature by the shelf, learn the violin, travel, learn basic Polish, watch over 20 films… Basically making my last summer as a student as memorable and exciting as humanly possible!

As a result, I’ve not had an internet connection from mid-June to August and am only now starting to plug myself back into the ‘super info-highway’.

I’ll re-start posting on a regular basis from the start of next week: it’s been 5 years since we enjoyed such a perfect (relatively rain-free) summer in the U.K., so I’m loath to come inside and sit in front of the computer for any real length of time.

Keat’s Sonnet X expresses what I’m feeling so beautifully that I have to include it.

To one who has been long in city pent,
‘Tis very sweet to look into the fair
And open face of heaven,—to breathe a prayer
Full in the smile of the blue firmament.
Who is more happy, when, with heart’s content,
Fatigued he sinks into some pleasant lair
Of wavy grass, and reads a debonair
And gentle tale of love and languishment?
Returning home at evening, with an ear
Catching the notes of Philomel,—an eye
Watching the sailing cloudlet’s bright career,
He mourns that day so soon has glided by:
E’en like the passage of an angel’s tear
That falls through the clear ether silently.

Hope you’re all having superb summers! Looking forward to catching up on all your thought-provoking and fun blog posts.

        Funny summer…weather wise anyway. Fall is upon us and I’m thankful for it. Seems like I was busier than a one armed paper hanger, but for the life of me can’t think of a thing I got accomplished! Good to see you and catching up is hard…better to just start new. Trust me on that one. 🙂

    I hope you had a great summer! It’s good to take a break every once in awhile! I think having “real-world” experiences will enhance your blog posts AND you’ll be more refreshed for the fall. 🙂

      Thank you! I hope your summer was perfect too. 🙂 Yes, “real-world” experiences have given me a chance to re-charge my batteries in time for getting back to work.
