Light and shadows
As the changeable season of autumn approaches I'm getting excited for new experiences. You know, that Back to School feeling that hits right about mid-August when the light just starts to shift. Don't get me wrong - there is still plenty of summer left, and that's good since summer never really got going until mid-July around here (I guess it was our penance for a warmish spring). Still, even as I'm anticipating our family's big summer get-away to the beach next month, my mind is turning to all things cozy: mugs of hot chocolate, cardigan sweaters with shawl collars, mittens, crunchy leaves, long socks...
Autumn is a season of light and shadows so I'm paying particular attention to those details these days. I haven't forgotten the lure of t-shirts and popsicle hues, but I will raise my glass of lemonade to toast the impending fall. (And go immediately back to my summer reading list.)
