As the sun goes down on the first day of September I am in a reflective mood. I am not alone, but I guess I am in the minority of people who dislike summer time. For me the summer is full of promise but fails to deliver. There is always a big build up to summer; hopes of holiday's, Barbeque's, days at the beach, picnics etc. For me none of this materialises and it is just like any other time of year apart from being hot and sticky with sleepless nights and an ongoing lethargy.
Thank goodness for the onset of autumn. Autumn doesn't show off. Autumn is mellow and beautiful. The sun is soft and not glaringly obtuse bleaching everything in sight like the summer sun does. So, farewell to the summer season and hello to my familiar friend the autumn. You are most welcome.
