This week I noticed the air felt like “Back to School.”
Did you notice it, too? Something about the way the breeze blows, the leaves rustle, the shadows lay, the sun hangs in the sky.
I felt a little melancholy for all the summer things left yet undone. I stepped outside to feed my koi, Bleau and Zorro. There, I gained a little perspective from the cone flowers.
The bees and this blue butterfly had no anticipation, only the here and now.
No need to borrow the next season and dismiss what’s here today.
Summer is now. Fall will come when she’s ready.
