on easing into fall

IMG_8186And now we come to my very favorite season of all in the northern hemisphere. Fall, when everything about is either dying or preparing to hole up for the winter ahead.

Autumn is the season in which I showed up on this planet, so perhaps that bent me its direction for life? I don’t know. All I know is that I love these dying, food-harvesting/devouring, wood-gathering, school-starting, day-shortening days. They bespeak all the hungers of all species ever to me, and make me feel at home in the world.

Wishing you a good season ahead, no matter where in the world you may be today!
