The fall will bite soon enough but the weather won’t be the only element gnawing through to your core. There will be a Sunday afternoon in the near future when you ride your bike through the parched leaves and cool wind that you’ll realize this adventure you’re living is a solo expedition. Sunshine and park blankets and drum circles can’t check every box and when it’s time to turn in the test, you’ve got to produce your own answers. But look on the brilliant, August-through-July side of things: the sun always shines; you just might need an extra layer of self to keep things cozy.
