Here in the southeastern part of the USA it’s unseasonably warm. Temps have been in the 80’s and 90’s. I remember as a kid when highs would be in the 60’s and lows in the 30’s and 40’s. Fall, so far, has been more like Summer. I sure wish it would cool down.
Heat can bring things together, it can can tear people apart. Sweat is a result of a body burning off fuel. Without heat things can’t grow. Heat can make it hard to rest at night. In the heat of the night lovers come together. The heat of the moment can show in your eyes someone once sang. Heat is energy going in all different places and spaces. A hot summer night can be a time to celebrate. Heat can make something taste better, different. We need heat in the same measure we need cold. May heat be something that makes life better, not worse.
Now is the time of year when you have to run your heat at night and your AC during the day. Fall can be a challenging season here in the south to keep comfy. Last night was the first night our heater came on and there was that familiar smell of dust being burned off the coils. The heat is on during the evening and during the day.
