Work, teaching, preparing to teach in the Fall, and the general hassle of life in the big city finds me busier than I ever recall being this deep into the summer. With my current Business Communication two-week intensive class beginning last night and its ending just before Labor Day (which means the summer ends in 2 weeks, at least for those of us who function in an academic mentality!), I see the summer slipping away . . .
As I try to dig out from a mountain of email and online discussions and papers and projects, I have to continually remind myself to seize the day and enjoy every last drop of the fleeting summer. After all, tomorrow there will be more communications and tasks and challenges, and the summer of 2008 will only be a memory.
What sort of a memory do I want to make it?
