I suppose that September through October and into the beginning of November will last just as long as the summer months did, but why do the four months before April seem to last ten months?
Last winter, I enjoyed the scenery, the snow and the coziness of the house. We did what we liked as the snow and wind swirled and blew.....Vicki creating art work and I my books and websites, yet the four months still seemed like ten. None of the other months do that...spring rushes into summer, which rushes to fall and on to winter again, then just as years before... everything moves at a snail’s pace to the next spring. I have never understood why it is so, but fortunately, we can find enough beauty and things to do to fill the time until spring does arrive, and then we are ready for the usual down hill, high speed rollercoaster ride again.....over, before it really begins.
I think we should look into the Quadra centennial dealing with the discovery of the Hudson River by Henry Hudson in 1609. They have many celebrations and programs planned throughout the year and we haven’t check out any of them. We should check to see where the remainder of them is and go to a few. I would kind of like to see the Half Moon, Henry Hudson’s ship, if it is on display somewhere. That would really be interesting and knowing that you can ride it....actually excites me, even though it is a replica. At least I would have an understanding what it was like some four hundred years ago, to be cooped up on such a large...but small vessel. AH yes..............wishes and dreams... of silly things.
