I love the in between-ess of this month. Anticipating Fall, the Holidays and a slowing down of life. A time for seeds to hug the soil. Cooler mornings and nights, more time spent by the fire, outside. Apples, grapes, leaves turning, summer flowers still blooming...in richer, warmer tones. Faithful birds, staying for a while longer before flying to warmer lands. Rain, gentle winds, golden yellows and burning oranges of sunsets.
September gives me another chance.
To embrace the gentle unhurriedness of change. A deliberate celebration of the middle.
To fall into Fall.
To see depth and warmth in the in between.
