It’s still dark outside, but there is still the content hum of the wind, whipping across the front porch. The air is crisp and moist, as the rain continues to fall, although it is diminishing every day. I believe the forecast shows that the sun will be allowed to come out today. I hope so because all these gloomy days are getting really old. Fall is supposed to be full of color and brightness, not overcast, dull gray, and windy.
Despite the recent spell of bad weather, I am glad for the changing season. I know this system is temporary and the colors will return. Leaves will float to the Earth once again, instead of flying by like bullets. The hammocks will be hung up soon and it will be time to sit outside and enjoy the breezes and the sounds of nature.
So this is for you Sun. C’mon out and play. We miss you.
