Now that we have reached the autumnal equinox, I can definitely feel the change in the air. The sun is setting sooner and each day seems to be cooler. I am back at school teaching again, but this time, at the High School! It is exhilarating and rewarding and I love this time of year!
There is a certain magic and eeriness about the autumn that I love. I feel as if powers that are not prevalent in the warmer months are now exuding from the very forest and moving in toward our houses with each new mist that rises.
I am also cooking more again, which I seem to do more frequently when the weather is cooler. Hockey is on tv and I am on the ice, officiating hockey more frequently each week. I see that some of the leaves are changing color and the pumpkins in the fields are ripening. Bring on the Autumn!
I updated and changed my book, “Kevlar Node,” which is about futuristic superheroes, freaks of nature and artificial hearts, with a new and alternate ending! Check it out now on BN and Amazon:
Our stylish, historical school building has been joined by some brand new buildings to add even more style to our entire school campus. I am so happy to be back at school and to hear all the great things students did over the summer. And I am eager to share my summer adventures with them.
I am also amazed at how much so many students have grown, changed and become young men and women. It is truly inspiring. It has been a good start to the school year already and with the great Indian Summer weather, it has been nourishing to the soul as well.,
We are enjoying Labor Day weekend with some good food, grilling, camping, hiking, playing golf, enjoying the sunshine outdoors and taking in some live music. We are also doing a bit of travel as well up to Leavenworth to see the mountains, enjoy the forests and rivers and playing some golf.
This has been a wonderful summer in the northwest and the weather has been grand! What a great way to end the summer with this gorgeous weekend. I am excited to spend more time outside but also looking forward to the new school year in my new job, in a new school, with new students. Bring it on!
