Discovering the Relevance of Words
This is it, you guys.
Here in the States, it’s Labor Day weekend, which as we all know means the advertisers and designers of drug store displays have decided that summer is over.
One last chance to enjoy yourself before the sunless and soul crushing winter begins, they say. Maybe I’m paraphrasing, but its basically just like Game of Thrones. “Winter Is Coming,” CVS tells us with their autumnal imagery and college ruled notebooks. “Time to stock up on school supplies.”
Ancient civilizations seemed to see the turning of the seasons as a representation of life and death. The approaching winter was seen as a little death. And not in the French sense.
In that way, Labor Day weekend is seen as the last chance to blow through your summer bucket list. All the irresponsible fun you meant to have in June and July has to be crammed into the last weekend of August.
I am fully behind this.
What do you regret not doing this summer? Will you do it this weekend?
