Five things I thought about during my morning walk:

1. Hey, there’s Tom and Susan running together. Sweet. Hello, friends.

2. Walking this hill is getting easier and I make better time since I’ve become a runner.

3. I know people love the autumn. But I have mixed feelings about it. Yes, it’s pretty and the cooler temps ate a blessing. But there’s always a hint of sadness in it for me.

4. Is the sadness just a noticing of the passage of time? Or is it the feeling of a chance of impending doom with the oncoming winter?

5. Or. It could be the light–or the lack of it. It’s a hard transition for me. I so need the light. How about you?

    As a biologist, I’d say the sadness is just normal circadian rhythms. The shorter days dampens them which has all types of physiological effects. I sort of try to embrace the changes and the gloom. Makes the spring so much more fun!

      Spring is my favorite time of year. I’m just a Spring kinda person! I think you’re right, Danny, about the circadian rhythms. Thanks for commenting.
