It Gets Late Early

It gets late early was a phrase I first heard in Cumbria. It is even more applicable up here in the Highlands.

I was reminded of this yesterday, when, for the first time in months, I had to switch on the lights for my evening virtual session. My American participants were amused by this happening in early September, but it got me thinking about how the seasons come and go, and the importance of making the most of each one.

There’s something about September. Still warm, changing colours, thoughts of cosy evenings after experiencing quieter places in the diminishing daylight. It is also a time of renewal and re-design, as opportunities start to emerge and plans are happily made, then altered.

Rather than mourning the departure of summer, let’s enjoy the onset of autumn. It might be getting late early, but there’s plenty to savour at this time of year.

What do you enjoy most about the onset of autumn?
