September is bittersweet; good things come to an end, but with anticipation of a peaceful rest in the not too distant future. It also represents new beginnings (school!) and a chance to slow down after the wearying race to Get the Most Out of Summer; a chance to reflect on your life, to start over. September is melancholy and yet leaves room for hope. It is my favorite month of the year.
