For most of my life, my year has begun in the fall.
School, choir rehearsals, meetings for professional associations and clubs, theater and concert seasons all start in September or October. New clients generally come in the fall, in a hurry to spend allocated funds so they won’t disappear in the next budget cycle. Fall is also when I begin most new personal projects: knitting, furniture rearrangements, attic cleaning, wardrobe weeding.
Right now, I’m listening to the excited voices of the kids in the school playground across the street, and watching the neighborhood squirrels fighting over acorns.
What shall I begin next?
