Transitions


Fall is creeping in under the bright sunlight and warmth of almost summer. Only the cooler nights and the changing tones of green give it away – the occasional red leaf poking out on this tree here, that tree there.
Rain falls, with a chill underneath.
It’s time for a change. I notice it on the faces of my friends, my colleagues. There’s that restless feeling amongst us all, the feeling we need to move on, shake things up, move forward.
Maybe it’s the feeling of the days closing in, that urgency to do something as the nights come sooner, the sunlit hours shorten. Maybe it shaking of the lassitude of long summer afternoons, spent in talk and lolling and soaking in the heat.
All I know is that every fall, around this time, I want to take new things on, sign up for classes, stretch my mind, try myself against a challenge.
Usually by November it’s worn off…
But in the meantime, while the cool fall winds blow, I’m going to do what I can to move myself forward.
