The Wind Whispered in My Ear

Psithurism – the sound the wind makes through the trees, the sound of leaves rustling and dancing as the wind blows, a soft whisper in your ears.”

I’m so glad that I actually did what I intended to do; walking around the Harvard Arnold Arboretum. One of the best choices I had made all week. It is a bit late in the season to catch the colors, but I was lucky there were still some colors in them. Sometimes when you are in the city for too long, it is difficult not to feel overwhelmed with everything. That is why I like to go here to collect my thoughts and just absorb everything. This is not really out in the mountains, however, I like the fact I do not see a lot of people and I do not hear sirens or cars passing by. I am grateful for that. Being here just makes me realize how grateful I am to be where I am right now. Enjoying the little things and being content. There will be a lot of obstacles and many things not working out how you pictured it to, but like Dory would say “just keep on swimming, swimming, swimming.”

The perfect way to say goodbye to summer and hello fall (a new semester as well).

Lana Del Rey – Summertime Sadness

Technically, summer is not over until mid-September but who are we kidding. Boston’s weather is so bipolar that we cannot even guess what the afternoon would it be like. It would rain in the morning and during the afternoon, the sun’s shining ray beams welcomes you. The humidity is heavy, moist and suffocating. It could be unbearable at times.

I’m just really excited for fall, my favorite season of the year. The vibrant colors when the leaves changes colors. The strenuous but rewarding hikes that are waiting for me to venture throughout this fall. Not only that, but fall fashion is the best. The many layers, socks, Oxford’s, and scarves I get to wear.  Just thinking about it makes me smile. That is why I am forever grateful that my dad decided to choose a state that have four seasons instead of just having summer/fall/spring all mixed into one.

How was your summer? Are you ending it with a bang? Or are you just like me and working the last day of summer away?

I love when it rains in the city, everything is calm and quiet. Perfect picture day.

As I am sitting here sipping my first hot vanilla soy latte (from Starbucks of course) of the season and listening to Erykah Badu. I think it is a perfect way to spend a rainy Labor day.

(n.) lit. “old hag’s summer”; a short period between summer and autumn, when the weather is still sunny, but not hot, the leaves begin to change color to yellow and little strings of spider webs are floating in the air.
