Lazy Summer Days

Simpler, quieter time

It's Labor Day Weekend in the U.S.--the last long weekend of the summer. The next holiday for most of us won't come until Thanksgiving in November. In a few weeks, the light is going to start changing and we're going to softly rollover into fall. As I get older, the seasons seem to go by faster and time feels compressed. I often wish for the days when life moved slower and hours were longer. Now, it seems like we're in a hurry to get everywhere and pack everything into less time. Just makes me tired thinking about it. Today's photo is of an alley in my neighborhood that made me think of simpler, quieter times.

Hope your weekend is relaxing.

Just a lovely shot with all that nice dappled light. Good perspective too!

This is a very thoughtful post. I love the photo, all that dappled light.

Time marches on.

Ah, yes, I plan on doing a lot of relaxing this three day weekend and a walk in a serene spot like this seems just the ticket!

BTW, I just found out it's Labor Day in Canada too.

Virginia: Dappled light is good! Perspective is, too, I guess.

Marley: Thanks! And, yes, time indeed does march on. And we with it.

Maya: Sounds like a good plan for the long weekend. And bully for Canada! One more reason to love our neighbors to the north!

Alaya: I thought the same, too! I almost walked down this alley, just to enjoy the peacefulness.
