I am always surprised when I come across people who believe that they have nothing to learn Yet it is rare that there is not something new to learn, a new idea, a different way of thinking about something we may already know or even something about ourself, or our reactions, in every situation in which we find ourselves.

This month brings the prominent return of two of the brightest lights in the evening sky–Jupiter, The Roman King of The Gods, and Venus, The Roman Goddess of Beauty and Love. I say prominent because both have been in the sky prior to May, but now both will be visible in the early evening/twilight sky simultaneously, at least by month’s end.

As the tilted Earth orbits the sun, there are times when the top half (northern hemisphere) is leaning toward the sun and receiving more daylight than night (summer) and times when it’s leaning away from the sun and receiving more night than daylight (winter). In between these two extremes, there are times when neither hemisphere is leaning toward nor away from the sun, and both hemispheres receive equal amounts of day and night. On September 22nd at 6:40 pm, Earth will be in this position and Fall will officially begin as we experience what’s known as the Autumnal Equinox. Equinox is a Latin word, roughly translated to mean “Equal Night” meaning, equal amounts of night.

Janelle Hanchett, author of I’m Just Happy To Be Here, is a wonderful writer. She can be sassy and sarcastic without sacrificing poignancy. I would like to take credit for her talent and her articulate expression as I was her high school English teacher. But, I can’t. She was a natural.
