In the past, it's a struggle for me to say goodbye to summer as a person living in upstate NY. I would live in denial that Fall is coming. You could definitely say that I would go through a grieving process as summer is my favorite season, I mean, I do live in a place called Summerville.
When does Summer end in your mind? Does it end when the kids go back to school? Does it end after your vacation and you go back to work? Does it end with Labor Day? Does it end with the official date of September 21st? And how do you say goodbye?
This year, I didn't think when I saw the prompt in Kara's online class (now in PDF) at the beginning of summer I would be ready, but I am ready to make an art journal page to say goodbye to summer. I'm not sure I need to cling to it until September 21st.
