I love the fall season. As child it meant a new outfit for school, new pencils and best of all, new books. As adult I find a sense of renewal in the fall. Fall feels like the start of a new year to me. The harvest is in, the wind is cool, and all living creatures are preparing for the next season. I draw my energy from the harvest of ideas I heard in the summer lecture series at Chautauqua, from the many ideas generated in porch conversation with members, from books and articles read and from the course I took on Board development. I have a journal filled with scribbling waiting to be interpreted, an inbox filled with carefully stored emails that have suggestions and a calendar flowing with meeting dates, travel plans and important events.
It’s time for me to use that harvest to prepare for the next KDS season.
