I am beginning to feel and see the first signs of autumn. I left home as usual at 6.15 this morning for my bike commute to work, and even though I was wearing a fleece jacket, I felt really cold for the first five minutes. The sun sets at nine, and it's now dark outside when I'm going to bed. The air is bright and clear, and running in it comes easy. It has been a wet and cold summer for most of the time, and it's gone by so quickly.
