Here’s the email that went out this week to the Think Write Thursday subscribers: I’m sure it will come as no surprise to discover that the Think Write Thursday topic for August 31, 2017 is to write a post with the title “Hello, September”. It’s become our little tradition to have this topic at the start of each month and we hope you all have a chance to write a post for this week.
Hello, September. I must admit that I have a slight sense of melancholy when I write those words. It’s not your fault that you escort in the end of summer and I’m trying not to hold it against you, especially since you also escort in many good things. Hannah’s birthday. My birthday. A baby shower.
The biggest thing, though, and probably the thing that gets me the most excited about you, is that you always feel like the real start of the new year to me. New notebooks and pencils, fresh calendars and brilliant to-do lists, I love the sense of rejuvenation that comes in September. The days are still warm but the nights have a distinct chill, sparking thoughts of organizing and purging, making and creating. September, you bring energy to my days and a return to creativity and routines that tends to fall dormant in the dog days of summer.
In other words, I am glad you’re here. Stick around for a good long while, won’t you?
