It’s Monday, September 4th- the week is over, and the weekend is over. Being one of the few long weekends of the summer, the long weekend is over, and it was the last one of the summer. Reality check – summer is officially over!
Depressed yet? Don’t worry. These cycles all repeat. Get over it.
Let’s analyze the word “Over” . From my limited Grade 9 Latin, I know that most words are based on Latin roots. Other words that evolve from this word are Ovarian Cycle- the cycle of life, and new beginnings – perhaps birth.
In the Arts , there’s the Ovation. After a concert- there’s an Ovation, perhaps even a Standing Ovation, if it was a particularly outstanding performance.
As American baseball legend Yogi Berra first uttered about the 1973 pennant race ”it Ain’t over till it’s over”.
As summer comes to an end. it’s time to reflect on my summer trip to the Southwest with the Phoenix Youth Group. Yellowstone National Park was the last National park of several that we visited. Here are some shots from that trip to Yellowstone. We started with the customary viewing of Old Faithful Geyser. Then, as the day wound down, we caught the last last rays of the sun at Grand Prismatic Spring.
So put on a happy face, the day may be over , the summer may be over, but there’s always tomorrow.
Over and out… Greg
