This Month in Spring - October 2020

October 27, 2020 Josh Long

Hi, Spring fans! Welcome to another installment of This Month in Spring. It's that time of year. The air is getting cooler, and dryer (I'm constantly static shocked! OWW!!), the daylight less, etc. It's the holiday season for many. Halloween is ahead of us, Thanksgiving in the US is ahead of us, Thanksgiving in Canada is behind us (Happy Thanksgiving / joyeux jour de l'Action de Grâce à vous, Canada), and of course in the US, election day is nearing (vote!). It's a time of transition, the tinting of leaves, the diminishing of foliage, the crisping of the air, etc. It's a special, somewhat melancholic time indeed. I love this time of year because it helps me to focus. There's so much less daylight - it becomes important to be even more deliberate in how I spend the time inside or outside. What do I want to work on? What do I want to see done with my finite time, resources and energy? I think I am more productive during these darker, colder months. Here's hoping! It's been unseasonably warm here in San Francisco so I am writing this from my balcony with a warm cup of coffee in hand and hope in my heart. Hopefully you can enjoy this month's roundup from some warm, safe and healthy spot in your life, too.

There's been a ton of stuff to absorb in the last month or so.
