michelle once asked me what shape my year is. by this i was thoroughly confused until she explained – in your head when you picture a calendar year, the seasons, the months — what shape does it take? what is the starting month? now some of you might be giving me the look i gave her at that time but some might get what she was talking about. well my year (in my head) is elliptical and usually starts with september – i think it’s from school times, it’s burned into my brain. and it consists of 3 sunny months: may, july and august. that is all.
