Transitioning to a new season

Have you awakened this morning with the same feeling I had?  How can it be September 1st?  Didn't summer just begin last week?  How did we get here so quickly?  Autumn is around the corner, whether we’re ready for it or not.  (Full disclosure: I am currently maximising my summer.  As you read this, I am finishing up my beach holiday, taking in as much Vitamin D as I can – with proper sun protection, obviously!)
