Fall

It's September. Time flies. It is often said that the older you get, the faster you feel time goes by. What about you? Um, it's supposed to be autumn in Hokkaido, Japan. A beautiful season. The air temperature today is over 30 C (86 F). Huh? It's a fairly usual temperature in other regions in Japan, to be sure, but NOT in Hokkaido! We've had a terrible, cold summer over here this year, but what the heck is this hot weather now? Summer should be hot, and fall should be cool. Even though I like hot summer, I don't want hot fall. My mind is not set that way. Something is wrong, isn't it?

Time is supposed to fly when you're enjoying yourself, so ... I definitely enjoy myself more as I get older, but I wonder if there's a statute of limitations on that one? On the subject of the weather, I was watching a documentary last night by the guy who wrote the Skeptical Environmentalist (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0521010683/qid=1031247809/sr=8-1/ref=sr_8_1/002-0633592-7985641?v=glance&s=books).

I think I'm going to obtain and read it ... he doesn't say the doomsayers are all wrong, just that they may be mis-stating the case somewhat, and that we may be doing the wrong things to combat the problems. Anyway, that was a bit of a tangent, but I was wondering if maybe you were just having an Indian Summer?

Maybe. That was temporary, and it's cool (or rather cold) today.

The book sounds interesting. Let me know your impressions after reading it.
