This month

Well it’s the first day Of October, and the rest of our lives. The
bonus is we’re one day closer to end of 2020 and hope that 2021 will
bring an end to the insanity that occurred during this year.

October is the 10th month of our year and is usually associated
with autumn in the northern hemisphere and summer in the southern
hemisphere. The following is list of things that occur this month.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Health Literacy Month,
Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month, World Menopause Month and
Vegetarian Awareness Month to name a few.

Here in the United States we have National Adopt a Shelter Dog
Month, National Domestic Violence Month, National Work and Family
Month, American Pharmacist Month, National Dental Hygiene Month,
Sudden Infant Death Syndrome Awareness Month, National Pizza
Month, and National Pork Month.

Oktoberfests and Halloween are observed this month and car shows
start to become less frequent until the indoor shows start next year
here in the Northern part of country. Leaves on the trees start to
put on a show of color before dropping to the ground and critters
grow their winter coats.

This poem by Robert Frost sums up this month better than we could-

O hushed October morning mild,
Thy leaves have ripened to the fall;
Tomorrow’s wind, if it be wild,
Should waste them all.
The crows above the forest call;
Tomorrow they may form and go.
O hushed October morning mild,
Begin the hours of this day slow.
Make the day seem to us less brief.
Hearts not averse to being beguiled,
Beguile us in the way you know.
Release one leaf at break of day;
At noon release another leaf;
One from our trees, one far away.
Retard the sun with gentle mist;
Enchant the land with amethyst.
Slow, slow!
For the grapes’ sake, if they were all,
Whose leaves already are burnt with frost,
Whose clustered fruit must else be lost—
For the grapes’ sake along the wall.

Enjoy our Thursday as the start of the weekend is only a dream
away.
