The Melancholy of Fall

I enjoy fall and after the sometime oppressive heat of a coastal South Carolina summer, it can be quite refreshing. However I always find it a melancholy point in the year when we hit the last day where one can reasonably wear shorts and sandals. I believe today might be that day. It’s downright chilly here and even though I’m wearing closed shoes, long pants and a long sleeved shirt, I’m wishing I had also brought a jacket.

Let’s raise a toast to one more lovely summer and wish it well. I’ll deal with my melancholia by drinking lots of coffee on this cold and dreary October day. I wish I could take a nap, but that’s generally frowned on in the workplace.
