Fall

20170922_141059

This is officially the first day of autumn or fall in the northern hemisphere. The beginning of Keats’ Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness

The aspen change minute to minute outside my window, becoming gold. The temperature drops.

For some people there is a tinge of melancholy but for others this is a time for new beginnings, changes, re-adjustments – habits begun with the cycle of the school year and which go deep and continue,

Journal prompt: What does autumn/fall mean to you? What changes do you notice in yourself, in your surroundings as the season changes?

Are you looking for a new educational, professional or domestic activity? Check out the local or online offerings for groups or classes that interest you, make your ‘to do’ list including the ‘want to do’ items.

Do you have a favourite poem or book for this time of year? (leave a comment at the bottom of this post). Ali Smith’s novel  Autumn, called by the New York Times ‘the first great Brexit novel‘, came out a year ago but still seems timely and uplifting – celebrating the connectivity of people and things in uncertain or confusing times.
