Last Walk of the Summer--6.96 miles

pink impatiens 
When is summer officially over?  For me, today is the last day of summer because school starts tomorrow.  I'm anxious to get back, too.  Two months is a perfectly fine vacation.  I've had a wonderful summer!
I walked with my friends Viv and Robin today.
You might remember that we lost Mikey, Viv's son, last Labor Day.
I asked her if she would like to walk to visit "his house" as she refers to it ... and, of course, her answer was "Yes."
So I dedicate this last walk of the summer of 2010 to our beautiful friend Mike Megdal ... who was with us for much too short a time.

Viv reminded me ... today is a gift.
I'm grateful for it.


  1. In the words of a common FB friend, "This moment is the perfect present..." (and I admit, it took me a while to really understand the weight of that...) Your friend Mikey was a year and a half younger than my son...'scuse me while I go wipe the dust out of my eye...

  2. nice post Roberta, you are such a nice person.
