The Magic of Autumn
last year. I double checked to find I haven't blogged about other seasons. Clear favouritism!
More honest than Summer (which promises much and rarely delivers), Autumn has its own particular beauty. I also value and welcome its inwardness, as we hunker down for the darker evenings and refocus. I always feel my creativity pick up after the summer - although I'm also always full of good intentions for the summer holidays... But we'll ignore that :)
I wonder how much of this is linked to the academic year, which has been a factor in so much of my life. Or maybe it's just that the academic year, based as it is on the agricultural year and its nature-dependency, works with natural rhythms that would exist anyway.
What do you think? Those of you whose working life doesn't revolve around the school year, do you feel this sense of renewal in the autumn?
