No Lifeguard

Even though autumn is my favorite season of the year, I always find the end of summer to be bittersweet. There’s something so desolate about the unattended beach that it’s nearly impossible to remember the heat and crowds that claimed it just a few weeks ago. At this time of year, it almost feels as though you have the entirety of Lake Michigan and the distant, twinkling City of Chicago to yourself.

  1. There certainly is some sadness to see summer coming to an end. The sadness is best captured in the song "urge for going" by Joni Mitchell but I like the way Tony Rice does it best.
