The warm sun with temps around 68 … a brisk cool breeze off of the water … and a palette of autumn colors … yes, the signals of change are here. The scorching summer season is packing up for another year.
Time to pause. To look. Listen …
… I hear something crashing about on the other side … but it pauses when I turn my attention in that direction. The birds have gone silent, and the crickets have stopped droning. They’re listening too.
And later after a little shuteye in the warm sun, it’s time to reflect on the changes, with a touch of steaming hot chocolate! Such is life … and it’s good.
