We had a meeting in the University Village, Seattle. September is shaping up to be a very interesting month and the Fall calendar is filling up fast. This morning Barbie Van Horn and I were doing a last walk through for our Mobile Communications Boot Camp clock hour class, aka #mobilecomcamp ... There’s always new tweaks, updates, and changes to embrace in social media marketing.
As we canvassed the urban village I had to stop at one of my favorite stores, Ravenna Gardens, and take in their end of summer and fall flowers. They had a wonderful selection of Gerbera, Supreme Elegance Cone Flower, Shasta Daisy, Dahlia, and Primrose.
It’s just a few minutes past noon. There’s clouds rolling by with patches of blue sky and I’m enjoying the kaleidoscope of sunlight as it comes and goes under the peaceful gaze of this Buddha figure. Autumn is my favorite time of year in the Pacific Northwest.
I love the late blooming flowers and the transition to autumn, especially those years when summer lingers on for a while. Cool mornings and warm sunny afternoons, the grass returns from summer brown to green and our coastal air is rich, kind of thicker, and fresh.
It’s probably all of those many years in school that autumn feels more like an arrival than a departure.
