I think my least favorite month of the year is October. It is the month of Fall. It is the month when the shortening hours of sunlight and change of seasons is most dramatic and noticable. People’s health and mood may take a turn for the worse. There is a death of energy and a pulling in feeling in contrast to the expansiveness of summer. It’s a creepy, foreboding feeling.
There can be crispy, bright days in this month that must not be overlooked because they are beautiful and exhilirating but overall I think it is a hard month emotionally and physically. I think the elderly feel it the most.
