By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

Following on from the speaking session today, I thought it might be interesting to open this topic for discussion.


Getting the right balance between work and leisure, or the work-life balance, can be difficult when society that increasingly puts demands on our personal space. In France it is against the law for an employer to contact an employee on their personal email address about work at the weekend.

Even if you don't have to go out to work, how do you manage your time, balancing chores and things you have to do with leisure (@Alexandra)? Do you run the risk of becoming lazy (me :D )? Or do you get bored if you don't have enough to do (@Vok)?

What hobbies or special interests take up the largest amount of your leisure time?

What do you do to create for yourself a healthy work-life balance?
