Paying Attention

Today was the fair parade, a sure sign that fall is here.  The day was beautiful, as it is here in the autumn - warm but not hot, a hint of coolness and changing in the air, bright blue sky with brilliant sun.  The best thing was the faces of the kids, eager and excited, anticipating.  I guess that was what resonated, the anticipation.  Truth be told, I too anticipate this harbinger of autumn each year.  It feels like a signal to begin settling in, enjoying anew the things of creation and of home.  A time to pay attention, and to savor the hues and fragrances.  After the heat of the summer, it is delicious.
