I love this post I came across today on Facebook. The artwork drew me in. Every year around this time, this is exactly how I feel. I want to retreat and nest. I’m one of the rare people who enjoys turning back the clocks. I welcome the shorter daylight hours because it gives me a good excuse to retreat.
The relentless sun of summer shames me, asks me, “What? You want to go home? You want to write and read? Fool! Get outside!” So I do, and I love it. But to everything its season.
I can write and read for long hours starting this time of year and feel no shame. I break out the hot soups and the teas. I put on wool socks and fleece-lined pants. All with a smile on my face.
The post is a short read. Enjoy!
