This being the last day of summer (at least on my Tracks of Nascar calendar, Richmond being featured for September), I thought it might be appropriate to make an appearance here before the bleak midwinter comes creeping onto the scene. Actually, Iím convinced our best days are ahead of us (because what else could explain the days weíre leaving behind?). One thing is certain here in the North Bay. Our hottest days are right now.

Actually, I donít know how I could be an more of a recluse during the winter than I have been all summer. My usual sunny mood has seen some darker than normal days, for no particular reason other than the shifting rhythms of life in general. Iíve sort of given up trying to alter my own outlook. Itís all I can do to take note of it and live in the moment knowing (or hoping, or at least suspecting) it will pass.

Late summer foliage.

Summer will end tomorrow no matter how much we resist, but unlike past years, Iím going to embrace the cooler weather. I didnít even mind the rain that fell a couple of weekends ago (although ďfellĒ might be too strong a term; this rain seemed to stumble more than fall). What I donít look forward to are shorter days with more darkness before, during and after. If thereís anything that puts the brakes on my good mood (such as it is) itís the endless night of a dreary November, December, January, and on and on.
