“September is a sort of hilltop in the year.
From its crest you can look back on the lush green valleys of spring and summer.
In the other direction lie the long colourful slopes of autumn.
At the horizon is the the white loveliness of winter.
In itself September is a mixture of what has been and what is coming.
It is a good time to take inventory of our experiences and blessings.
It brings a realization of the goodness that is forever flowing into our life.
There is another benefit. It utterly defeats the notion that time is some flapping and fluttering independent thing that just delights in breaking all speed records.
It is a great time to review the events of the summer, dwell on the lessons we have learned and express a measure of gratitude.
