Turn, turn, turn
Brother Sun is racing across the sky these days, such a different journey he takes compared to just a couple of months ago, when he wandered north and then south again before setting in the late evening. These days when I walk home from work, the only visible sunlight is the clear gold on the highest branches of our tall trees, only the turrets atop the houses on East Capitol Street are still illuminated.
This morning is chilly, which reminds me I need to dig out my Hugh Grant movies (where did I put them when I moved?) in preparation of the holiday season. Unlike previous years, I look forward to the holidays this year. I foresee a lot of gathering and feasting with people I adore. Everything is so good here at the chateau - even the holidays seem promising!
Even more than the heart of any season, what I really love, what thrills me, is the shift from season to season. Though autumn and spring move in serious slo-mo here in the American midatlantic, fall is leaning hard upon us. It'll be almost hot today, but then tonight it will cool down to chilly again. How exciting. (You see? I am easily amused.)
Happy Saturday, y'all. Shalom.
