And so, summer has finally ended, just how it began. By chance or not, the very beginning and end of my summer were marked by the same company of two close friends, EJ and Jeremy. I have had an interesting summer, although I imagine most summers throughout my life have been and will continue to be “interesting”, each in their own particular way. At this time, I can’t yet fully grasp all that has happened this summer. I’ve written it down and catalogued it for a later time, but it’s not for posting or reflection just yet.
This morning, I finished reading the Lord of the Rings (not including the appendices) for the very first time and have fallen in love with Middle-Earth. I’d like to read the Silmarillion sometime soon, but I think I will take my leave from Tolkien-lore for a short time to catch up on other good reads.
And now, autumn approaches, and I am looking forward to the changing of the seasons. I do particularly enjoy the fall and would usually consider it to be my favorite time of the year. I know not what the fall semester has in store for me, but I await the next few months with an open mind.
