Leaves turn yellow early this year.
but must be left behind.
It's time to move on.
The photos are of Emily, my dear friend who came up to visit over the summer. I miss her like crazy. I wish some things went on forever.
But the summer is over now. Autumn is starting, early even for Alaska. Leaves are dying, falling, stripping their trees of color, readying them for their next stage. I need to move on, too.
I will never forget this summer, ever. It can easily be called the best summer of my life. The new friends I have made will last forever. Maybe even longer.
Yesterday I started 10th grade. So far everything is going well. I'm thankful that it is still warm enough to go outside and breathe without the negative temperatures freezing my throat. I love the autumn, but it is so sad. This year will be good, though. I'm excited about what God has in store for me and my family.
I'm ready to start a new surge of creativity. I can feel it running through my veins. I wonder what it will look like when it's drawn out on paper or in words. I'll give you a peek at it in my next post, hopefully. And I'll leave you with that.
Have a beautiful rest of the summer, everyone.
