Fall

Fall now appears to be in full swing. Mornings are crisp and sharp. The sun takes its time to make an appearance. The insects begin to burrow in hiding and the birds begin to take flight to warmer horizons.

With the changing of the leaves and the season this is a list of things that I like best about Fall:
  • Sweaters
  • Potato Soup
  • Smoked Meats
  • Football
  • Combines in the fields
  • Hot tea
  • Sunsets
  • The manifold colours of leaves
  • Bonfires

Following the change in seasons is the change of needed sleeping habits. I have noticed that my need for sleep is in direct correlation to the amount of sunlight each day. While it seems that summer can be dealt with on minimal amounts, fall begins to change the cycle.

I imagine that our ancestors, pre electricity, also experienced this same thing. Daylight provided the ability to work and play while darkness was the indicator that it is now time to temporarily hibernate. Animals also seem to follow this same pattern of behaviour.

I have spent so much of my time these past few years working several jobs at once. Sleep seemed very overrated, but now as the season of my life also changes I hope to find more physical rest from work as well.

Rest. Reboot. Replenish.

I don't mean for any of this to sound like new-age spiritualism; but rather maybe it is time for a new age of returning to some of the old spirituality...the natural kind.
