while it lasts
yes, green oak leaves have been hanging around since late may. but i am noticing them now only because they will soon be red. many of my friends are becoming empty nesters. and, without exception, they all get teary and nostalgic about everything their fledging child does during the months leading up to departure. omg, this will be my last (fill in the blank) ever. these are the same mom’s who one year prior could not find a single nice thing to say about their almost young-adult child who never did a dish, a load of laundry, or put gas in the car. well, every fall, in late august i am that soon to be empty nester mom. omg, this is my last chance to photograph green stuff for the next six months.
