August 20, 2006


Even though it’s August 20th, there’s a cool breeze blowing tonight. It feels almost like an autumn chill. The trees in the backyard are rustling almost with that enchanting sound usually heard around Halloween, though it’s more than two months away.

I always find a certain magic in the cool breezes of autumn. It is then when I feel Mother Nature is at her most intriguing, getting this part of the Earth ready for a blanket of snow and long winter’s night. It’s my favorite season though it feels rather odd to experience when there’s still a month of summer left.

I’m hoping this is just a gentle reminder of what’s to come in a couple of months.
