Today feels different, I can’t quite explain why but my heart feels heavy. My rational mind blames it on the erratic change of seasons. And it’s not just me, even the nearby trees are confused, some leaves are yellow, others green. We have a sunny, humid day followed by a crisp, overcast one. And this morning there is rain in the air. All of it has a cocooning effect, a reminder that winter is around the corner. And I’m not ready for winter. The multi-layers, the puffer coat with its mitten/hat/scarf ensemble. I’m not ready to fold up my favorite summer cotton and pull out chunky knit sweaters and wool.
