October One

It's October. The weather changed, quite suddenly, two days ago. We wondered if it will last, if the desert is taunting us, planning another wave of brutal heat. We didn't wonder long, because the sky's been full of birds, flying in groups. Some are high above, just dots in the sky, some low, so we can hear their voices and wings.
The crows are restless. They're not going anywhere. But they know change. The light is different.
We are different.

It's October. And all that goes with.

Interesting that the phenomenon reached your neck of the woods...er, desert, as well. The weather took a dramatically cool change the first day of October. I'm loving it! Suddenly it is in the low 40's when I wake up in the morning. I'm in autumn heaven.

Carl V: I like reading with morning coffee, curled up under a blanket outside. Harlan Ellison today, my favorite wool point and a big mug with extra milk.

wv: menti---how my brain feels after a fresh breeze

happy October
