Column: Making a fresh start for fall
This morning the weather took a strangely cool twist for August. I woke up to 46 degrees for the first time in months. Dewdrops lingered on the lush green of my lawn. Buttery gentle sunlight sparkled on the dew. A busy day lay ahead preparing syllabi for the new courses I'm teaching this fall. It almost seemed like nature responded to this change of pace, scaling back from the poolside heat to a fresh autumn cool.
