I cannot tell you how glad I am that summer is (mostly) over! The heat and humidity seems to be getting worse and worse every year, especially here in NYC. Next summer I hope to be either in Siberia or on a houseboat docked in the northern most part of the North Sea.
Now that it is September again there are cultural offerings aplenty (which I am very grateful for) after a very bleak summer—bleak for one who does not really list ‘going to the beach’ as a top priority. For me, September means a plethora of art shows to see, galleries open on a schedule that works for those who actually have jobs, lectures at the universities about town, glorious fall weather where one can delight in wearing layers (tights, tall boots, & little sweaters—Hurrah!), many walks over crisp fallen leaves, and also no need to worry about makeup melt-y face after a 15 minute bike ride! All very exciting, indeed!
