August 19 – Late summer

I caught a glimpse of autumn this morning as this shaft of light pierced the canopy of leaves outside my window. The air is cool and there's a different tenor to the rustling of the leaves in the wind these days. The apples on the apple tree down the street are a little redder every day; the starlings come home to roost a littler earlier every night. Tonight I sat and ate dinner and listening to them chitter and chirp as they settled in for the evening, trading their tales of their days aloft.

Some people have been bemoaning the cool weather and the sight of the first scarlet leaves, but not me. I love this time of year and this time around I'm anticipating the coming season of change even more eagerly than usual. Bring on the cool nights and early evenings, the apple crisps and show-off maples. I'm ready.
