September feeling

Autumn is the wabi sabi season for excellence
September always marks the tail end of summer, as the days grow shorter and the air carries a different scent, more invigorating, reminiscent of leaves. September also signals the start of school; after an entire summer spent with my son, I always feel a deep pang as we adjust to new routines and he ventures out at dawn for school. September also heralds a season of courses, workshops, and fresh beginnings, perhaps even some good intentions. It’s during this month, more than any other, that I receive inquiries about artistic activities. Not all aspirations materialize, but it remains true that September holds within it the lingering warmth of summer, gradually dispersing it until December, when Christmas arrives – but that’s another tale altogether. The colors become warmer, and beneath it all, a trace of melancholy lingers, gently cradled by the interplay of endings and beginnings. September also ushers in the autumn, the wabi-sabi season par excellence, with its earthy tones, textures, and the yearning for home, for beautiful things, for cups held in hands, for Sundays on the sofa… And then there’s that subtle, poignant melancholy, ever mindful of the passage of time and the ceaseless flux of life.
