IMG_2088edit_edited-4I spent the day in the desert today and boy was it miserable…103 degrees with 103% humidity give or take. As for the photo, it’s of a shadow-casting bike rack that caught my eye in Palm Desert.

96670003That old September feeling, left over from school days, of summer passing, vacation nearly done, obligations gathering, books and football in the air … Another fall, another turned page: there was something of jubilee in that annual autumnal beginning, as if last year’s mistakes had been wiped clean by summer.

treessophiaSorrow and scarlet leaf,
Sad thoughts and sunny weather.
Ah me, this glory and this grief
Agree not well together!
