November reflections

‘At last we’ve arrived at the season in which we are all given license to be unremarkable.’

This piece on why autumn is boring and great resonated with me.

November has been pleasantly familiar. Bright, crisp and suddenly dark.

I’ve spent days working and studying, either in our cosy office or a quiet corner of the library. We’ve spent evenings at home with warming meals and Netflix, or at other people’s homes with board games and tea. Weekends have meant afternoons on the sofa and walks during treasured sunny hours.

As autumn turns to winter and the year draws to a close, I’m appreciating the unremarkable, everyday stuff.

See you next month.
