It's the Rentree!

Well, our rainy, soggy, downright flabby excuse for a summer is over. This week ushers in the "rentree" (pronounced "ron-tray" - there is usually an accent on the 2nd e, but i don't know how to make that happen in Blogger) - which literally means the "coming back", or "coming home." And indeed, it feels like the city's population has doubled overnight (at least in the neighborhoods where people could afford to take the whole month of August off).

It's been nice to walk around and feel that exciting, back-to-school energy in the air. Fall - my favorite season in many respects. Happy memories of sharpened pencils and clean, white notebooks ready to be filled with important things. The appeal of a clean slate. New friends, new teachers, new ideas. And pumpkin pie just around the corner...
