Summersville Lake in late September is always a bittersweet experience. Most of the people on the lake now are locals and and only a handful of boats send ripples across her surface. A small group children still play at the Battle Run swimming area. Their laughter carries across the receeding lake like summer’s last echoes. This is the Fall of 2020 and young blood has been fated to a few extra days of sunshine and pleasure. In my heart I know that it’s a more natural way of living. But the sounds of joyous freedom are mingled with the laughter of crows as well. The dark birds know full well that in just a few weeks the sun will sleep and the leaves will turn bright colors before dropping to ground. When the air is cool enough the lake will be their’s save for the most dedicated fishermen that hope to draw a walleye from the chilling depths. As I stand on the newly revealed shoreline and gaze across the waning water I find myself both mournful that the season has come to a close and yet thankful for the the solitude offered by the emptying resovore.

The end of the season is always a bummer. I feel that especially this year. “Winter is coming” has such a different mouth feel this year, you know?

Hi Amy and thank you for taking the time to comment. ❤
Spring and Fall are my favorite seasons but winter is probably my least favorite. However, I do like quite time by the fireplace and winter makes that special. It’s also nicer to enjoy a great homemade stew and cold weather kinda helps me to be in the mood for that too. 😊
I know that the world is in a scary place this year but my grandfather always taught us that God will make a way and that we will always have what we need when we need it. He also told us that he survived WW2 by staying positive and learning to appreciate the little things that happen everyday. 😊
