The September Equinox finds me in the blessed space between stories. Warning: this post contains a photo of a spider.
There’s a little time to enjoy doing practical things: clearing out the shed, unpacking a box (I moved seven years ago) and closing down some of the tabs I’ve left open on my browser ‘in case I need them’.
Here are just a few of the things I have looked up since the June solstice. See if you can guess which of them might have been needed for a story. Links are in bold.
Plus some photos from walks in the area.
What is the word for swede in Swedish? Hint: it helps if you ask the online translation for ‘Swedish turnip’ otherwise you will get Svensk when you want ummm … kålrot ???
And finally, Time and date of the September equinox. Here is it the autumnal equinox: for Southern Hemisphere friends, Spring is on the way. The exact date and time if you live on the Greenwich Meridian is 22 September 2021 at 20.21 BST. Neat numbers.
The above whatnot is extracted from my diary: ‘June Solstice to September Equinox 2021’. I used to have one diary for the year but as it became too big and slow to load I split it into seasons.
Tomorrow begins a new diary, a new phase.
