I am thinking about autumn and what it will bring.
The obvious is shorter days, longer nights, gentle breezes, and cool temperatures.
The world will shrink as birds migrate, insects overwinter, and deciduous plants and trees transform from intense hues to bare limbs. Backyard gardeners will plant winter crops or put their beds to rest until spring.
Rest sounds good to me.
This is the time of year that I want to be lazy, but as it happens every fall, I will be raking acorns and oak leaves through December.
So much for rest . . . the work has just begun.
