Summer Already Winding Down

Looks like the undergrads are starting to stream back into town … a sure sign summer is coming to an end after the zenith (if you can term it that) of Art Fair. No tidal wave yet — I walked home from campus this evening and the neighborhoods around East University and Packard are still relatively quiet. But the center of campus was full of kids dragging cardboard boxes and shopping bags — I guess in preparation for the end of old leases and the start of new ones. School itself (at UM, anyway) starts September 6, exactly four weeks from today. It’s going to be strange not joining the flocks trooping off to class, but not strange in an unpleasant way.
