I realised it yesterday that today marks the end of summer in the Continent and the beginning of Autumn.
I know that many people will exclaim that they love this season, because it's a lot cooler and they love it for the varied hues in the countryside and in parks.
I do agree on this. It is worth having a good stroll in a park or in the countryside to watch the changing of the colours in the trees. There will be all sort of purple, yellowish or brown colours mixing with the still existing deep green of their foliage.
There is a special light everywhere and it isn't this blinding as it is in summer. True.
It is time for sweet potatoes and roast chestnuts. It is time for pumpkins and Halloween is around the corner.
However, we'll soon have to move our clocks back, meaning that nights will be longer and shorter the days. will be.
Not a good season for those like myself that suffer from SAD, that is, Syndrome of Affective Disorder. Mine is mild one, but I still have to cope with it
It is time to think of a programme of activities to keep me busy during the dark months.
It is time for broths and hearty stews to fuel the body. with proteins, vitamins and carbohydrates.
Thus, waiting for sunnier and longer days to enjoy in the open.
What will you do when it's dark at four in the afternoon and it doesn't stop raining?
Will you have a go to learn a new language?
Will you join in a cookery class? Or, will you dust those writings of yours that are in a drawer waiting for a closer look?
Yeah right! Autumn and Winter suits well a creative leaning.
