Ennui and August

Always important toward the end of August to give serious consideration to attitude and posture. Exercise is critical, discipline is useful, avoid the comment section of the online newspapers, don't even think about contributing to Facebook, try not to answer emails from the political parties, avoid answering the telephone, read the works of the great minds. Stand tall, be brave, check the sock supply.

And there are blessings to count, there's no weeding in the winter, there aren't very many spiders, a person doesn't get buzzed by hordes of angry young Humming Birds, it gets dark early so going to bed at seven o'clock in the evening makes more sense, and there's nothing quite like the coziness of eight or nine blankets and the woolly nightie. In short it's a win/win all round.
