September 1 is like my New Year’s. It’s a time to make plans, get ready and get excited about what’s ahead. Since most of the places I have lived have been hot, Fall brings relief from all that is sweaty, stuffy and makes me want to stay inside. Most people lose weight in the summer, but not me. When it’s too hot to go outside-I go to the movies (and eat), go out to eat (and eat) and have a great excuse not to walk the dog.
As I write this it’s still as hot as ever, but September brings the idea of cooler days. So for today, look at these and imagine how good it would feel to be at a stable, among the horses on a cold and misty morning, watching them curiously look at you, and the only hot thing you feel is their breath on your hand as they walk up to say good morning.
