The Things We Know
When I say the things we know I'm referring to the things we know first hand because we have experienced them. Our knowing is our experience and every experience we have is tied to feelings and emotions that are like wells that are tapped at different times later in life; through a smell in the air or a visual our senses bring it all back. For us as Canadians September is the beginning of fall, the ending of leaves on deciduous trees beginning the process of new life or renewal. In our lives it is the start of school, for us as kids, or our own kids, for hockey ,winter season and many other things that start anew at this time of the year. The tears and times on the merry-go-round of life, lots of new-old memories live in September days. We know them deep in our hearts.
