Favorite Time of Year

This is my favorite time of year. If they had to pick a single 30-day period in which to live the rest of their lives, many would choose the month of July or August, when mid-summer temperatures are H-O-T hot. But I would choose the the period from Sept 15th (now) to October 15th.

I read somewhere that the human brain operates most efficiently at 55-degress F ambient temperature (13-C, or "sweater weather"). Not sure if this is true, but I have noticed I'm able to think more clearly at cooler temperatures. I wonder if this is why many of the world's elite academic institutions (Yale, Harvard, Princeton, Oxford) reside in cooler climates, and schools traditionally break for summer. Kinda hard to concentrate when it's hot.

Today, here in sunny SoCal, we have one of these "super-nectar" days: cool, dry, sunny, gorgeous. In New England, where I grew up (Ct), this time of year also corresponds to when the leaves change colors (400-KB). That's the thing I miss most here; that, and the smell of the autumn leaves in the air. If you've never been to New England in autumn ... well, that would be sad.

Happy birthday to the Dog. He's one of those who like it best when the weather is hot, hot, hot. We used to run 4-miles/day in Hawaii (at Ala Moana Park). I always preferred to run at sunset, when it was cooler, but he would say, "Dog, if you can run in the heat of the day, you can run *anytime*." Ah, the good ol' days.
