Very wisely, Nature limits the allotment of these blissful days between seasons. It’s hard to get serious about, well, serious things. I’ve got things to do, a chore list. Savoring the lingering touches of summer and welcoming the autumn morning bite in the air with her burst of glorious sun-soaked color….not on my list.
I’m reminded how precious, fleeting and fragile this pause between seasons is. If I had to get stuck somewhere on the calendar I’m pretty sure I’d pick this week. A few tasks await to get ready for the tremendous 3 day art event, ‘Meander‘, that my family is honored to host at the RedBarn. Really, it’s great fun to get some autumn decorating done, gather up the pumpkins, make a few scarecrows, plan for family coming to stay with us. First off, a stroll around the yard to breathe in this rhythm of life we call ‘the present’.
Summer is hanging on, fall has arrived and they both agreed to share the last day of delicious September with…. ah, me….and you if you’ve got a few minutes to step out side!
