The small space between the last days of summer and Autumn have
beckoned me to linger longer when I'm outside doing chores.
Feeling the last warm days and smelling the dry leafy air as I hang laundry
on the clothesline, I can hear crickets in the grass and a Bluejay call overhead.
There is much to do in this period before the cold sets in but I pause every
now and then to sit and savor this moment or take myself for a walk down a lonesome country road .
