Summer Again

It feels like August again, although unlike any other August. Red destinations are turning amber. Amber destinations are turning green. Some will go abroad, but many more will be sitting in a rented cottage or caravan in Devon or Cornwall. So why does it feel like August? It’s overcast, drizzling slightly and the streets seem just a little more subdued, a little more quiet. This subdued and quiet aspect, in relation to my therapy practise, has been an annual feature since I began to practise 14 years ago. A quiet August usually means a busy September. 

If the international travel traffic light system remains as is, then I too will be abroad for the second half of August. Like most people in the UK, I haven’t been too far from home in 15 months and certainly not on any excursion that might qualify as a holiday. And I need this break! Then I will be prepared for September and look forward to summer again.
