Dog Days of Summer

Summer is winding down and I know that because when I go running at night in the park near my house it feels colder. It’s still warm enough to wear shorts and a t-shirt, but the temperature has definitely dropped.

Children wearing yellow visors and red scarfs now crowd the elevator on my way out the door each morning. It’s September and school has started.

All of the parents are worrying about their children and all of the children are doing their best. I don’t have children, and even if I did I wouldn’t know where to start.

This time of year reminds me of when I was younger. The dog days of summer. Back then running was soccer practice with all of my friends. Late nights that ran into October and sometimes even November if we played well enough.

Those were the days.
