Summer Gone By

Another summer runs by, and me without any backpacking/backwoods time to show for it.

Growing up is annoying. It used to be that Summer was a wondrous time, full of happiness, laughter, and friends, tempered only by the looming presence of Autumn and its FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL.

Nowadays, my life is work, work, head off newest disaster that's befallen us, check on last great disaster that befell us, and make sure that disaster that befold us ain't coming back to befall us again, and work.

Sure, I get money now, but think on this: What use is money if I can't enjoy it without multiple Dooms of Damocles hanging over it my head?

Where have they gone, the days of carefree wonder?
