I love September, the beginning of fall weather, the back-to-school excitement, getting out warmer clothing and so on. I've noticed a few September-y things that I've enjoyed around the web recently so want to share a few of them.
Firstly, check out this gorgeous evocation of the season, found at Tea Leaves:
I'm so glad it's September. I even like writing the word "September." That sinuous S, the "ember" that calls to mind a fireplace, the first hints of orange and yellow foliage. The first Step towards true autumn.
Then, listen to a gorgeous poem entitled "Peaceful & Crimson" which I've blogged about this week at my blog that I keep as part of my business, Four Rooms Creative Self Care. Poet Tanya Davis (best known for her viral youtube clip "How to be alone") has created a poem for the CBC, and I enjoyed it greatly, especially the idea that September allows us to be released from the pressure to make the most of every sunny summer day outdoors!
If you need a good laugh, try listening to the September 8th interview of Alexander McCall Smith by Shelagh Rogers at the Woody Point Writer's Festival in Newfoundland. It was hilarious, he and Shelagh together are quite giddy. If you enjoy McCall Smith as I do, it will be well worth your time.
And of course, September begins the RIP Challenge -- if you're still thinking of joining, check out all the reviews already posted for some spooky inspiration.
