Rather than beginnings, as I keep reading, it appears to me as an ending. Having said that, I'm not good at endings or goodbyes. Unless, of course, it is the dentist drilling, drilling and I scream at him in my brain 'Stop, oh, please, stop".
I look forward to Winter. This is a favorite of mine and fall is just one step closer to that season. It too is a reflective season as well as a planning season. The one hundred days of celebrations has begun, holidays in the very near future and a time to plan ahead.
I'm still enjoying the cooler evenings. A window open to let the breezes in. The squawking of the early morning Blue Jays is a great wake up call. They are the harbinger of what is to come.
I wish you all a happy Fall. Enjoy the fruits of fall as well. I finally found my appleman. I've been waiting on him for weeks. I had begun to think the worst, he is quite old and infirm, but there he was on Saturday with his flatbed truck parked in his usual spot bringing the wonderful produce from the Shenandoah Valley. Alls well with my little world.
Keep safe, keep warm. rd
