october light

light copy
I love the way the October sun shines. Inching its way south along the horizon, it gives off a softer light than its predecessors and a yellower light than its successors. About 5 p.m., it slants just low enough to filter right through the lowest tree branches, but not so low that it loses any vibrancy.

It makes me sad that the tree branches will soon be stripped, that the mornings will be dominated by gray fog and frost, and that we’ll soon be warding off subfreezing (and subzero) temperatures with multiple woolen layers and hot fires in the woodstove.
But it makes me happy that we’ll soon be celebrating Thanksgiving and Christmas with royal feasts, that we’ll (hopefully) have a few days of snowglobe weather, and that I’m turning eighteen in January.
Well, okay. Let me be completely honest. I’m not totally sure that the latter invokes a 100% positive reaction. But it’ll be an adventure. :)

What are you looking forward to?
