Jeff Scher is a film-maker who a few times a year creates wonderful shorts that he uploads to The New York Times. Here is a link to his latest--an ode to the passing of summer. http://scher.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/08/31/summer-retreat/
In his description of the movie, Scher wrote: "Summer always feels endless until it suddenly ends. For kids, there is no greater tragedy than summer’s end. September is the Monday of months. "
September is the Monday of months. Wow.
