Fall is in the Air

Can you feel it today where you live?  The slight hint of the autumn ahead?  Here in Southern Cal, a cool breeze flows through the window.  DH is shopping for school lunch food for the back-to-teacher-meetings week starting Tuesday.  The minister at our UU fellowship is back from her summer break.  A friend’s husband just returned from Iraq.

A new season is upon us.  A new energy sizzles in the air.  I love fall.  DH loves fall.  People say we don’t “have fall” here, because our foliage is as subtle as our temperature changes.  But there is a fall weather here, a fall smell and a fall vibe — it brings me back to the first day of junior high and the white sweatshirt I wore that day — even though we can still be at the beach in bathing suits many days in October.

I’m enjoying the end of summer now, and the prospects of fall ahead.  I’m enjoying the returns and departures that the new season brings.  The circle of life has had its cruel moments for us this season, but the circle will continue, as the leaves continue to grow and shrivel and grow again.

And we will continue as well, doing our best to treasure the breeze and what it brings.

    Oh yea…I feel it in he air too! It’s a wonderful butterflies-in-the-tummy feeling getting ready for a new school year, isn’t it?

    I too am enjoying what is left of my summer 2008. But I am looking forward to the fall as well. Love the fall! I live in NY, on Long Island…and the fall here is amazing. The colors, the holidays, the east end wineries and fall festivals. I just love it!

    Well said, thank you!
