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.
