The sun is going down earlier and (seems to) be coming up later. This morning, out on my run, I was up on a ridge and got a view of the town, still asleep, with mountains to the west and the sunrise to the east.

It was cool, calm and peaceful. I really like(d) living here and I was stuck by sudden melancholy about leaving this place soon.

Then I was struck in the forehead by some giant-ass nasty bug and that brought me back to reality: jobs go away, people move on and in a few months no one will ever know I lived or worked here. The town won't look much different, someone else will be out running on the ridge and enjoying an early-autumn sunrise.

I barrelled towards home and a hot shower.
