Falling (& Then Rising) into September

The precision of Mother Nature to acutely turn the dial from the last unofficial big weekend of Summer to Fall would make any master Swiss watchmaker blush. Yesterday’s heat (at least in Columbus, Ohio) juxtaposed with today’s rainy chill was too stark a reminder that daily and weekly plans must be adjusted to soon accommodate orange and green leaves spread across streets and sidewalks, along with the quest for sweaters, khaki pants and brown boots packed tightly in bins stored in basements and attics. For the college football fan, Saturday’s now become a navigation of kickoff times of noon, 3:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.

What does this mean?

It means (in certain ways) an identity refresh. Priorities may change from season-to-season. It can translate into a personal restart. Like any good, entertaining play, the story cannot and should not be judged on the first act alone. Act 2 is usually when the depth of characters and plot lines are realized and understood. All great stories have fun experiences, coupled with a small obstacle or two. Quite frankly, that’s what makes the situation real. That’s how things work. Plus, slight overreactions and/or miscommunications (I might have a little experience with this) should always have oxygen for a sincere explanation.

And, if things get a little chilly, grab a sweater.

Talk about good timing, right?
