Welcoming Autumn

On Thursday, we suggested joining a sports team as part of the transition from summer to autumn. Not only do we think about new sports as the seasons change, but we also think about starting another year.

September begins this Saturday and September, for many of us, signals the start of a new period. Many calendars start in September and provide 16 months of planning. The Jewish New Year is in September. Here in the Northeast, it is the beginning of the school year. And this year, the autumnal equinox is on September 22nd.

While resolutions are usually only associated with January, September ushers in a time of renewal. The flowers die, but the cool breeze thankfully returns. So now is a time to plan. Are there changes you want to make? There is no need to wait until January 1st. With summer over, now is the perfect time to dream about what you want for the upcoming year.
