Fall…a new season approaching. Fall is my favorite season–not for the inevitable winter season that follows here in Maine–but because fall signals the eventual dissipation of summer’s humidity, with its cooler, crisp weather, and the opportunity to wear comfy sweaters and sweatshirts with leisure pants or jeans (instead of tank tops and shorts, yet still unable to get cool enough — I don’t do well in humidity!)
The beauty of fall here is another reason I love the season.
This month of September also holds a couple of special events: my oldest granddaughter’s 4th birthday and my youngest daughter’s birthday (mommy of my granddaughters!) 🙂 It doesn’t seem possible that my “baby” (who will turn 27 in 10 days) was the first one to get married and have babies–2 daughters now and another on the way–and now her first baby is 4 years old already! Ah, yes…the circle of life.
My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird
I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns.
