Heigh-Ho, THe Wind And The Rain [Sep. 14th, 2004|09:01 am]
Tony Grist
I used to get very maudlin about the end of summer. I guess I was experiencing it as a metaphor for the passing of youth, because now that I'm inescapably middle-aged I don't give a damn. Bring on Autumn! Right now it's raining and blowing hard and I'm just as happy to see it as I would be if the skies were blue.

I have loved school all my life, and for me the chilling of the air and the turning of the trees gives me the kinds of feelings other people associate with spring: excitement about new beginnings, new life, expansiveness.

Since I'm about to start the second year of my second masters degree, I just keep reinforcing this, even though I'm going to be 40 in December. As long as I'm going back to school in the Fall, I don't feel that I'm getting older.

This Fall feels like a new beginning to me too. Only I've not yet been informed what I should be doing with it.

Fall- great word. Here in Britain we more commonly say Autumn, but Fall is better- so much more evocative.
