This is the month when leaves change color, pumpkins ripen, people get out and about to view fall foliage ... it's a Good Transition Month, one of those happy transitions. It's like May, which is going into summer. A happy month.
Poor November and April. Those are the gloomy months, the not-quite-months. Not quite fall, not quite winter. Not quite winter, not quite spring.
I've been thinking about "not quite" lately. As I've mentioned before, I have books that need a publisher and I'm not quite ready to face that yet. I have a conference to manage, but it's not quite ready. I have Paycheck Work to do, but the product isn't quite ready to work on.
I'm in a stuck-between place and I know in about 2 weeks, everything will land on my desk at once and suddenly we'll be There, ready to go.
So let's hear it for those "not-quite" places in life. That's my time to kick back, take a deep breath, and get ready for what's next. Savor it. Because it might not last too long.
