Summer shifts to a season for growth and learning.


People who say that Southern California has no seasons have probably not spent much time here. Here in North County, we can feel the crisper touch in the air in the morning and evening. Santa Ana winds scrub the skies clean, the beaches are less crowded and the kids are back in school. It’s a season of new starts, without the midnight countdown.

It’s the perfect time to check in with yourself as a learner, too. Buy some books, try a new recipe, explore a new hobby, get down to a different beach, stroll down a street in your neighborhood where you wouldn’t normally walk. This particular September won’t be coming back.
