September

Try to remember the kind of September
when life was slow and oh, so mellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
when grass was green and grain so yellow.
Try to remember the kind of September
when you were a young and callow fellow,
Try to remember and if you remember then follow.
I was up early this morning (Sunday), and was taken aback at the change in weather – from hot and muggy to cool and breezy in a few short hours. It is September! I look back at this summer and think, my we’ve covered an awful lot of ground together. 
We’ve had our adventures along the lakeshore – finding new washrooms and water fountains at every turn. What more could a walker want? Well, maybe those cookies we found along the way (carbo-loading). And we enjoyed a lovely day at the island, even seeing the clothing-optional beach for ourselves (just another place to hang out).
The song above is all about remembering. Remembering days past, months past, and even years past. But remember too that we continue to create memories with every step we take. So look to the path ahead ….. and follow! (Follow, follow, follow, follow, follow)
