September Energy and Fresh Resolve
All grownups need the fresh start of the first day of the school year. Kids have this, of course. And my academic pals do, too.
For me, time seems weirdly seamless. Gardening season eases into kayak season which cools back into gardening. And work is the same year-round: except that in August a lot of people are hard to get hold of.
Now August is over, and yesterday and today here are suddenly crisply September-the-way-it’s-supposed-to-be. Makes me want to start fresh, buy a ring binder and a Sheaffer cartridge pen and some Blue Horse notebook paper (the basics of my long-ago school days.)
I did clean out some files yesterday (only because my computer was “in the shop”) and it was almost as good as new school supplies.
Because of the change in weather, September–not January–feels the proper time for new resolve. Got any new goals or resolutions for this semester? I plan to have my nailed down by Labor Day.
