The air is already cool and crisp this week. And when I breathe deeply, fall fills my lungs and my heart!
Tomorrow is the beginning of August and perhaps (I hope!) there is still a bit more summer to come. But today I found the first turning leaves--gorgeous red against the plump violet-blue of the ornamental grapes(?) just outside my front door.
My very soul is wedded to it,
and if I were a bird
I would fly about the earth
seeking the successive autumns."
