Urge For Adventure September 2018

Hey Guys,

Together we make it man on man.jpg

 It’s September and we are heading into Fall, still, time to get outside to enjoy whatever extended light the sun gives by day or activities in the cool of the evening.

Do Not miss out on suggested items for participation in this month’s events. Below is a list of some of the fun, wacky, or offbeat holidays and themes for the month of September. Recognizing a ‘theme’ is a simple way to bring fun and interest into your Life. Some folks create habits, rituals, and traditions to help strengthen their cultural lifestyle. If nothing else, these themes make good Conversation Starters.

This September, consider the words of  Robert Finch – “But now in September the garden has cooled, and with it my possessiveness. The sun warms my back instead of beating on my head. . . . The harvest has dwindled, and I have grown apart from the intense midsummer relationship that brought it on.”
