procrastinating clinging to the memories of a summer that ended too soon. Sigmund Freud defined denial as a defense mechanism, “in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence.” (Wikipedia)
Seeing today is the last day of October, and daylight savings time ends this weekend (for those of us who’ve been chosen to participate in it), I suppose it must really be fall. Last week, the temperatures took a nosedive, a nor’easter came to town, some areas of the country got snow, and my body kicked into hibernation mode. I am now ready to proclaim that autumn has arrived.
