November is a between month for the weather in Central Illinois. Today was clear and sunny with temperatures in the high 50’s – classic fall weather. Still before the month is out it is likely that there will be a taste of the winter to come. November seems to be a month that is low in drama, not like October where the distance between this world and the next is supposed to be at its closest, or like December with one of the biggest holidays of the year. Instead November has probably the least commercialized of holidays. One mostly about getting together and eating a lot. Which judging by the size of most people eating a lot is something that most of us do on most days anyway.
If you have been kind enough to read this far you may be starting to think that I don’t have much to say tonight. And you would be right. I did make a start of it and not much came out. My main purpose in posting is to start on a goal of posting once a day in the month of November. Thirty posts in thirty days. The thought did come to me today that it might help my writing to attempt to say something every day. Of course setting some arbitrary goal like this could just be a symptom of an obsessive personality. Whatever the cause I have made my first post of thirty.
