Falling Into September

September in Oregon is most often a continuation of summer.  For me that’s a good thing.  Though I love autumn, summer has always been my favorite season.  I want it to keep on going, and usually we’re lucky enough to have it do just that through mid-October. 

One thing that was missing this year were those few hints at the end of August that fall would be coming soon.  Our summer has been pretty consistent with warm weather and not too much rain.  I realized for the first time, that I felt a little thrown off by not having the nip of chill in the air.  This time I’m not digging my heels in refusing to let go of summer days like I usually do at that original harbinger of autumnal certainty.

With the only clue to autumn seeming to be the inevitable earlier sunsets, I think I’ll be in for a shock when it eventually arrives.  September is here today, ready to claim autumn, but I feel as if I’ve fallen into a trap.  It really can’t be September when I left myself somewhere back at the beginning of July?  Can it? 

Oh yeah, that’s old age setting in! 👵  They do tell you how time goes by faster and faster.  But who listens?  And if it’s zipping by now when I’m approaching sixty, then how fast is it going for my eighty-three year old cousin when she’s telling me time is going by more quickly than ever?  Does it go at warp speed?   Stay tuned.
