The Cure for the Fall Blues

We just turned the clocks back.  It gets dark early, it’s cold,  and summer is long gone.  I get a little sad with the diminishing light.  I have found that the best way to deal with my “fall blues” is to get out and move.  I pull on my cap and gloves, and get outside for a cool, rainy day run in Sausalito.  Nature is slowing down in our Northern Hemisphere, and perhaps we can slow down a little, too.  But don’t stop completely!  The change of seasons from summer to fall is a wonderful time.  What leaves remain on the trees are colorful.  The last few flowers are bravely hanging on, and have a poignancy about them.  The cool, fresh air has scents of wood fireplaces.  The autumn sunlight is spectacular with long shadows.

Go out and see the transformation, and then come inside and curl up with a book.
