September Song

Another month is upon us, which is probably a good thing. August was a rough one in a lot of ways, though it did produce at least a couple of good results:

1) Thing Two turned 17.
2) My parents celebrated their 48th anniversary.
3) We got Thing One moved into his new apartment in Richmond.
4) I finished a new draft of my novel.

And that's about it. I didn't get any significant reading done during August because I can't really read a novel while trying to write one. If I try, I end up trying too hard to do whatever it's doing. I re-read a bunch of graphic novels and comics collections and spent waaaaay too much time reading stuff online.

But now September is upon us, faculty meetings have begun, and students are returning to Woodberry. We'll start auditions for the fall play next week, and then my first class meets on Tuesday. I'm reading John Hart's The Last Child, which was our school-wide summer reading selection, and then I can pick up my newly-snagged copy of Vladimir Nabokov's Pnin, which I've been greedily anticipating since I found it in Ithaca. And maybe I'll get a chance to get this book sold and get cranking on the next one.

But it's a long, long while from May to December
And the days grow short when you reach September.
