August is a sunshine month where I live. Sunshine produces serotin and elevates human spirits and activity levels. It rectifies the imbalance in winter month serotonin levels that influence mood in a way that leads to winter depression.
Sunshine fuels photosynthesis in plants that leads to growth and production. In August our gardens and orchards are burgeoning with food and fruit.
Short cool nights and the long warm days are what this month features. August days are long and evenings are a time to play and socialize with friends and families outdoors. The ocean is warm and swimming is delightful and it’s the only month of the year we witness phosphorescence on the water. It’s a great month for boating and fishing too.
In August my friends and their kids come to visit and I enjoy their company all month long until they leave on Labor Day weekend.
August is my birth month and that also makes it a special month for me. I’m taking a brief blogging break to enjoy my favorite month of the year.
Best wishes to you!
