October 15, 2010 – propped up

It seems fall has finally arrived. It is a relief to feel the coolness in the air that, not long ago, was thick with dampness. Perhaps we can open our windows now and feel the crispness that encourages us to knock down cobwebs and fluff pillows, for soon, the holidays will be here. The dawdling moments of summer have diminished and I see night falling earlier each evening, minute by minute. 
“Autumn begins with a subtle change in the light, with skies
a deeper blue, and nights that become suddenly clear and
chilled.  The season comes full with the first frost, the
disappearance of migrant birds, and the harvesting of
the season’s last crops.”
